Malvegil (T.A. 1144[1] - 1349,[2] died aged 205) was the seventh ruler of Arthedain.

History

Malvegil was the son of Celebrindor, and gained the kingship of Arthedain upon his father's death in T.A. 1272.[2]

It was during Malvegil's reign (c. 1300) that the Witch-king founded the Angmar. To this realm were drawn evil men, Orcs (who begin attacking the Dwarves), and other fell creatures. Due to the growing evils of the Misty Mountains, Hobbits moved westward and many of them settle in Bree.[3]

Malvegil ruled Arthedain for seventy-seven years, and was succeeded by his son Argeleb I in 1349.[2]

Etymology

Malvegil's name probably means "Sword of Gold" or "Golden Sword", being a combination of the Sindarin words mall- meaning "gold", and megil (becoming lenited to vegil) meaning "sword".[4]
