An event in the Dagor Bragollach; see that entry for an overview:
Hador Lórindol, son of Hathol, Lord of the House of Hador and 1st Lord of Dor-lómin, and his son Gundor are slain:
[The] hosts of Hithlum were driven back... to the fortresses of Ered Wethrin, and these they hardly defended against the Orcs.
