He was wounded by archers when he first issued from Angband, in a skirmish two hundred years after the Dagor Argeleb. Glaurung was also wounded by Azaghâl, Lord of Belegost, with a Dwarf-knife in the belly when he crushed him to death in the Nirnaeth Arnoediad.
So he was wounded in battle twice, although only one of those is numbered as one of the great battles of the War of the Jewels.

In the First Battle of the Fords of Isen, who fought with the Isengarders for Théodred's body? (Looking for two names here)

Was it Orodreth? The battle resulted in the sack of Nargothrond.

Yes...Orodeth or Turin would work, since Turin persuaded Orodeth to openly attack, thus revealing the location of Nargothrond.

Fingolfin wasn't killed in the Battle of the Sudden Flame. He died in a duel against Morgoth.

Daniel, I understand where your coming from. Fingolfin was killed by Morgoth during the Battle of the Sudden Flame.

I'll find another question later today.

We have misunderstood each other. After the Battle of the Sudden Flame, when all seemed lost, Fingolfin rode alone to Angband, challenging Morgoth to combat. So, you could say that he died because of the Noldorne's defeat at the battle of the Sudden Flame.

Joy: The chapter in the Sil was called of the Ruin of Beleriand and the Fall of Fingolfin

Would that be it?
