Things of Middle-earth
Description:The chain forged by Aulë stronger than all other chains, with which Morgoth was twice bound: first, when defeated by Tulkas and taken before the Valar, being imprisoned in the Halls of Mandos for three ages before he could beg forgiveness again. The second time, at the end of the First Age, when finally defeated in the War of Wrath, the assault of the Valar on Morgoth's stronghold of Angband. He was then bound with Angainor and shut beyond the confines of the World.
