Morgoth, also known as Melkor, was the first dark lord in J.R.R. Tolkien's Middle-earth universe. He was the most powerful Ainur, but stole the Silmarils, and along with the spider Ungoliant, destroyed the Two Trees of Valinor. This touched off the war of the jewels, detailed in Tolkien's *The Silmarillion*.
