Glórund sets forth to seek Túrin
J.R.R. Tolkien

1927

The curse of Morgoth pursued Húrin's children, Túrin and Niënor. Their encounter with the dragon, Glórund led to the final episode in their tragic tale. In The Book of Lost Tales, Glórund is also given the Qenya name, the Foalókë ('the serpent who guards his treasure'), and described as one of the mightiest of 'the dragons that Melko has loosed upon the world... the mightier are hot and very heavy and slow-going, and some belch flame, and fire flickereth beneath their scales, and the lust and greed and cunning evil of these is the greatest of all creatures: and such was the Foalókë whose burning there set all the places of his habitation in waste and desolation.' MS. Tolkien Drawings 87, fol. 34. Reproduced with kind permission of The Tolkien Estate Limited for the Bodleian Libraries exhibition Tolkien: Maker of Middle-earth.
