Battle of the Pelennor Fields
With his brother Derufin, Duilin followed his father to Minas Tirith in the War of the Ring, and there they fought in the Battle of the Pelennor Fields. The Men of the distant valley of Morthond had great skill as bowmen, and so Duilin and Derufin led their archers against the mûmakil, attempting to shoot out the beasts' eyes. Brave as they were, both the brothers were lost in that battle, trampled by their gigantic foes.
Duilin is a Sindarin word for "nightingale".
