Description:

An event in the War of the Last Alliance; see that entry for an overview:
Amdír... was slain in the Battle of Dagorlad and most of his company with him. Amroth, his son, became king.

Unfinished Tales, Part 2, Ch 4, The History of Galadriel and Celeborn: Amroth and Nimrodel

The Silvan Elves were hardy and valiant, but ill-equipped with armour or weapons...; also they were independent.... Their losses were thus more grievous than they need have been, even in that terrible war. Malgalad1 and more than half his following perished in the great battle of the Dagorlad, being cut off from the main host and driven into the Dead Marshes.

Unfinished Tales, Part 2, Ch 4, Appendix B, The History of Galadriel and Celeborn: The Sindarin Princes of the Silvan Elves


Notes
1   Malgalad is another name for Amdír; this passage contains its only use.
