He was the founder and first King of the northern Elven Kingdom of Doriath and was respected by all the Sindar of the Beleriand, who considered him to be the High King of the Sindar and the Lord of Beleriand.


‘..for fair and noble as he had been, now he appeared as it were a lord
of the Maiar, his hair as grey silver, tallest of all the Children of
Ilúvatar; and a high doom was before him.’

There fell Celegorm by Dior’s hand, and there fell Curufin, and dark Caranthir; but Dior was slain also, and Nimloth his wife, and the cruel servants of Celegorm seized his young sons and left them to starve in the forest.
