gandalf collection glamdring movie sword replica
Glamdring is originally the sword forged for the Elven King Turgon in the First Age. In The Hobbit, Glamdring went missing for six thousand years until Gandalf found it in the Troll-hoard of Bert, Tom, and William in the Trollshaws. The swords Sting and Orcrist were also found in the troll's cave. As with many First Age Elven blades, the swords glow blue in the presence of Orcs.

Glamdring along with Orcrist, its mate are described as having "beautiful scabbards and jewelled hilts" and are inscribed with runes which Gandalf himself couldn't read. He recognizes that "they are not made by any troll, nor by any smith among men in these parts and days." Later when the swords were presented to Elrond of Rivendell, he deciphers the runes and explains the swords' true origin and purpose. They were crafted by the Elves of Gondolin for the "Goblin-wars". Elrond calls Glamdring "Foe-hammer that the king of Gondolin once wore". The Goblins name it "Beater".

Balrog fight Gandalf Bridge of Khazad-dum
In the Misty Mountains when Thorin Oakenshield and his companions were attacked by Orcs, Gandalf came to their rescue with flash of fire and smoke. He used Glamdring to severe the head of the Great Goblin. The other Orcs fled when they recognized the legendary sword Beater. Gandalf continued to use Glamdring throughout the saga in The Lord of the Rings. In Moria, he wielded the sword against Orcs in the Chamber of Mazarbul. On the Bridge of Khazad-dum, Gandalf confronted Balrog with Glamdring. The blade gleamed with white light and shattered Balrog's red sword into molten fragments. After demolishing the bridge pass with his staff, Gandalf and the Balrog fell into the abyss but continued to fight until Balrog fled to the Endless Stair. In the Battle of the Peak, Gandalf finally defeated Balrog.

When Gandalf returned as the White, he still had Glamdring by his side. Then he left the sword in the care of Hama, the Doorward of Theoden at Meduseld. Gandalf later retrieved Glamdring and bore it throughout the War of the Ring. When the war was over, Gandalf returned to Bree with the Hobbits. It is not known whether Gandalf took Glamdring with him to the Undying Lands at the end of the Third Age.
