Gil-galad

Ereinion Gil-galad was a fictional character in J. R. R. Tolkien's Middle-earth. The son of Fingon, Gil-galad was named High King of the Noldor in Beleriand after the fall of Gondolin and the death of his uncle Turgon. During the Second Age, Gil-galad's realm was in Lindon, and he enjoyed the friendship of Númenor while it was still faithful, and was an ally of the Númenórean kingdoms in exile (Gondor and Arnor). He formed the Last Alliance against Sauron with his friend Elendil, High King of the Dúnedain in exile; he was slain, along with Elendil, in battle with Sauron at the end of the Second Age.

His spear was named Aiglos[?].
