In The Children of Húrin by Tolkien (and edited by his son), Húrin was bound by the power of Morgoth to a stone chair on a high place on Thangorodrim. He is later released after both Niënor and Túrin commit suicide, Niënor by casting herself over Cabed-en-Aras into the river Teiglin, and Túrin falling on his sword Gurthang.
In the final scene of the book, Húrin finds Morwen near the grave of Túrin. She knows she’s dying, and she asks Húrin how Túrin found Niënor, but Húrin doesn’t answer. Why not?
‘Almost,’ she said. ‘I am spent utterly. I shall go with the sun. They are lost.’ She clutched at his cloak. ‘Little time is left,’ she said. ‘If you know, tell me! How did she find him?’
But Húrin did not answer, and he sat beside the stone with Morwen in his arms; and they did not speak again. The sun went down, and Morwen sighed and clasped his hand and was still; and Húrin knew that she had died.
