The name Ringil refers to more than one character, item or concept. For a list of other meanings, see Ringil (disambiguation).


Ringil was the great tower in the far south of Arda that held the Lamp Ormal during the Years of the Lamps. In the early legendarium, its destruction was said to have created the Sea of Ringil.

Ringil was also the name of the sword of Fingolfin, said to have glittered like ice. With it he wounded Morgoth seven times in single combat after the Dagor Bragollach.
