In the Third Age of Middle-earth, the old and powerful wizard Gandalf and his band of dwarves came upon a troll lair in Rhûdaur where they found two ancient elven swords and a knife. The exact history of these blades is uncertain, but when Lord Elrond examined them in Rivendell, he determined that they were the well-known and ancient Elven blades used in the Goblin Wars to kill many Orcs in the First Age.
The sword named Glamdring was forged by the High Elves of the West in the hidden city of Gondolin. Glamdring survived, only to be found thousands of years later by Gandalf and his companions. Gandalf claimed it for himself and piloted it through the Quest for Erebor, using it against the goblins of the Misty Mountains and, later, in the quest to destroy the One Ring. This magnificent sword remained with Gandalf until the end of his days in Middle-earth.
