Melkor imprisoned by the Valar

Event Type: Military/Strategic

Age: Time of the Trees

Year: 1100

Description:

An event in the aftermath of the Battle of the Powers; see that entry for more information:
[Melkor] was bound with the chain Angainor that Aulë had wrought, and led captive....

[When] the Battle was ended and from the ruin of the North great clouds arose and hid the stars, the Valar drew Melkor back to Valinor, bound hand and foot, and blindfold; and he was brought to the Ring of Doom. There he lay upon his face before the feet of Manwë and sued for pardon; but his prayer was denied, and he was cast into prison in the fastness of Mandos, whence none can escape, neither Vala, nor Elf, nor mortal Man. Vast and strong are those halls, and they were built in the west of the land of Aman. There was Melkor doomed to abide for three ages long, before his cause should be tried anew, or he should plead again for pardon.
