True. I think the idea that Gondolin was the last to fall of all the kingdoms, was baked into the mythos from at least the BoLT stage if not for as long as Gondolin existed in JRRT's mind. Yet in LotR he had Elrond imply pretty plainly he'd seen at least one arrayed to march to battle.

The language is a little imprecise, but he could have been only referring to Eonwe’s host in the CoE statement. It was a host, and it was in Beleriand. It was also the only host that produced anything approaching glory unless you go all the way back to the Dagor Aglareb.
Always after a defeat and a respite, the Shadow takes another shape and grows again.

I don't have any humble opinions.
