Círdan establishes a refuge on the Isle of Balar

Event Type: Military/Strategic

Age: 1st Age

Date: October 1, 0473

Description:

Then the Havens were laid in ruin....; and the most part of Círdan's people were slain or enslaved. But some went aboard ship and escaped by sea; and among them was Ereinion Gil-galad..., whom his father had sent to the Havens after the Dagor Bragollach. This remnant sailed with Círdan south to the Isle of Balar, and they made a refuge for all that could come thither; for they kept a foothold also at the Mouths of Sirion, and there many light and swift ships lay hid in the creeks and waters where the reeds were dense as a forest.
