Last Alliance:

The Last Alliance of Men and Elves. This army was the greatest in Middle-Earth after the host of the Valar in the Great Battle. In 3434 of the Second Age, Gil-galad, the last High King of the Noldor and Elendil, the High King of Arnor and Gondor, declared war on Sauron. They successfully besieged Barad-Dûr after winning the battle on the Dagorlad. The siege lasted until 3441, when Sauron was overthrown on the slopes of Orodruin. However, both Elendil and Gil-galad died also. Isildur claimed the Ring, and set the stage for the War of the Ring which ended the Third Age.
