Gwaewar the Eagle was a son of Thorondor and the father of both Gwaihir and Landroval.It was Gwaewar and his kinsmen who saved Thórin & Company from the Orcs and Wargs of Goblin Town.


Gwaewar originally was an early name of Gwaihir in J.R.R. Tolkien#s first drafts of the Lord of the Rings. Later however he discarded the older version.The Name is used here for Gwaihirs predecessor in the Hobbit.As Gwaihir was said to have carried Gandalf only two times, the Eagle King in the Hobbit must have been his predecessor, possibly his father.
