This page is about the elf of the First Age. For the Captain of the South-gate, see Turgon (Pelennor)

Turgon was an High King of the Noldor, second son of Fingolfin and ruler of the hidden city of Gondolin.

He was married to Elenwë of the Vanyar, who died on the Helcaraxë. With Elenwë he had a daughter, Idril Celebrindal, the mother of Eärendil.

After his brother, High King Fingon died in the Battle of Unnumbered Tears, Turgon became High King of the Noldor.

He ruled only for a few short years until the Fall of Gondolin, when he was killed, and the High Kingship of the Noldor passed to his deceased cousin Angrod's grandson Gil-galad.
