Grond was the great warhammer of Morgoth Bauglír, the first Dark Lord, which he wielded in the First Age. It was also referred to as the Hammer of the Underworld. He wielded it when he fought with Fingolfin, who challenged him to single combat after much of the Noldorin were defeated in the Dagor Bragollach.
During the Third Age, Sauron, Morgoth’s trusted servant and his successor as the Dark Lord, perhaps in homage to the Hammer of the Underworld, gave the name Grond to an enormous battering ram forged in Mordor to smash open the gates of Minas Tirith.
“There’s a carving on our gate,” said Dacey. “A woman in a bearskin, with a child in one arm suckling at her breast. In the other hand she holds a battleaxe. She’s no proper lady, that one, but I always loved her.”
