Gormlaith Golden-Hilt was an ancient Nord heroine who helped overthrow the Dragons during the Dragon War in ancient times. She is famed for single-handedly slaying four dragons in one day. She can be seen on the Throat of the World and in Sovngarde. Her brother was Hakon One-Eye.
She helps the Dragonborn kill Alduin in the Battle of the Tongues, along with Felldir the Old and Hakon One-Eye. She was against using the Elder Scrolls to defeat Alduin. Alduin killed her, atop The Throat of the World, in which Felldir the Old had little choice but to use the Elder Scroll. Using the Elder Scroll caused a time wound to be created.
