Fingon becomes High King of the Noldor

Event Type: Political

Age: 1st Age

An event in the aftermath of the Dagor Bragollach; see that entry for an overview:
Fingon, son of Fingolfin, becomes the 2nd High King of the Noldor in Beleriand:
Thus died Fingolfin, High King of the Noldor....

Great was the lamentation in Hithlum when the fall of Fingolfin became known, and Fingon in sorrow took the lordship of the house of Fingolfin and the kingdom of the Noldor; but his young son Ereinion (who was after named Gil-galad) he sent to the Havens.
