Beren led a force of Laiquendi to defeat a band of the Dwarves of Nogrod on the banks of the River Ascar, the northernmost of the seven rivers of Ossiriand.

The Dwarves had sacked Doriath, the great Sindarin Kingdom of Beleriand, and the golden treasure of Thingol's Menegroth there was emptied into the river.

The river was known thereafter as Goldenbed, or Rathlóriel in Elvish.
