Ungoliant (Sindarin IPA: [uŋˈɡoljant] - "Dark Spider") was a primordial being in the shape of a gigantic spider and one of the most terrifying evil spirits in The Lord of the Rings universe. She was initially an ally of Melkor in Aman, and for a short time in Middle-earth as well. She is the mother of Shelob, therefore the oldest and first spider. She may be the personification of consumption, greed and oblivion itself.
