Glamdring

Glamdring is a sword in J. R. R. Tolkien's fantasy universe of Middle-earth. It was forged for the Elf Turgon in the First Age. For several thousand years it went missing, until Gandalf (and company) found it in the trolls' cave in The Hobbit and claimed it for himself. He continued to use Glamdring through the events of The Lord of the Rings.

Glamdring is inscribed with runes in the Elven language that say "Turgon Aran Gondolin, Tortha gar a matha Glamdring, Vegil Glamdring gud daelo. Dam an Glamhoth." which translates to "Turgon, king of Gondolin, wields, has, and holds the sword Glamdring, Foe of Morgoth's realm, Hammer of the Orcs."

Glamdring is supposed to glow blue when orcs are near, like Frodo's sword Sting. However this was left out of the movies by New Line Cinema.
