Gil-Galad's given name was Erenion, but in all records and memories
he was known as Gil-Galad. The last High King of the Noldor, Gil-galad
was slain on the slopes of Orodruin by Sauron. Gil-Galad was given
Vilya, the Ring of Air, by Celebrimbor, and only during the War
of the Last Alliance, gave it to Elrond, who then bore it, until
it lost its power, and then sailed into the West with it. Gil-Galad's
spear was known as Aeglos.
