Finduilas's Tolkien Page Places in Middle-Earth

The North Kingdom of the Dunedain, Arnor was founded in the year 3320 of the Second Age, after the Downfall of Numenor. Its founder was Elendil, who was the High King of both Arnor and Gondor (founded by his two sons, Isildur and Anarion). The tenth King of Arnor, Earendur, split the realm between his three sons, so it was later called Arthedain, Cardolan, and Rhudaur. In Cardolan and Rhudaur, the Dunedain soon dwindled enough that by 1350 of the Third Age, it was overtly allied with Angmar, the realm of the Witch-King. After the destruction of Angmar, the line of Arnor's Kings never failed, though Arnor was ruined, and the Kings were called Chieftains instead. It was from this line that the Kings of Gondor eventually came from too, with the end of the Third Age and Aragorn's crowning.

The first capital of Arnor, Annuminas, was deserted when the capital city removed to Fornost. Annuminas was rebuilt during the reign of King Elessar during the Fourth Age.

The realm of the Witch-king, later discovered to be the chief of the Nazgul. It lasted for approximately 700 years.

Melkor's stronghold, built after he destroyed the two lamps it was built under the Ered Engryn. Though it was partially destroyed when the Valar captured Melkor, it was not completely cleaned out and Balrogs and others still hid there during his captivity. After he escaped from Valinor, Melkor rebuilt it and it was never again taken until the Great Battle that ended the First Age of the Sun. Angband was, of course, destroyed when the most part of Beleriand sank beneath the ocean.

The Blessed Realm, and the home of the Valar after Melkor destroyed Almaren. When Eru changed the shape of the World during the Downfall of Numenor, Aman was removed from the circles of the World, in such a way that only the ships of the Elves, could return by the Straight Road. Aman had many names of which the most common were, The Blessed Realm and the Undying Lands.

Our World.
Before the downfall of Numenor, Arda was flat, encircled by a great sea. However when Eru changed the shape of the World and destroyed Numenor, the world was made round, like it is today.

A village in the Bree-land where Hobbits and Men live together. Archet is located to the north of the Chetwood.

Amon Anwar (The Hill of Awe):
The hill within the Firien Wood, later used as a beacon in , the line of beacons between Gondor and Rohan. Prior to the coming of Cirion, Amon Anwar was the site of the tomb of Elendil. Isildur set it there as being the center of the Realm of Gondor as it was at that time. Being a holy place it was chosen for the oath of Cirion and Eorl. After that time, Elendil's tomb was removed to the Hallows in Minas Anor, seeing as the hill was no longer the center of the realm, but on it's border. After that the hill became one of a line of beacons, and being on the border, its upkeep was by both men of Gondor and of Rohan, though later the upkeep fell to Rohan.

The caves within Helms Deep, they are especially magnificent. After the War of the Ring, they became the site of one of the Dwarf-Kingdoms, with Gimli as the Lord. The name means Glittering Caves. Back to the Top


At the crossing of the North Road and the East Road, Bree is one of four villages where the Big Folk and the Little Folk live in harmony. All of the villages are in the Bree-land: Archet, Combe, Bree and Staddle. The Bree-land was the nearest location settled by Men to the Shire. The Bree-land was settled by Men first before the founding of Arnor. Hobbits entered later, around 1300 of the Third Age.

The Barrow-Downs:
The Barrow-Downs were green downs within which there were barrows predating the arrival of the Dunedain. In the year 1409, the remaining Dunedain of Cardolan took refuge in the Barrow-downs during the wars with Angmar. Around 1636 of the Third Age, the Barrow-Downs were inhabited by the Barrow-Wights. After this the Barrow-Downs became a place of great terror. In Sindarin the Barrow-Downs were called Tyrn Gorthad.

The tower and dungeons of Sauron in Mordor. Baradur was rebuilt with the power of the One Ring after the year 1000 of the Second Age. When Sauron was vanquished by the Last Alliance, Barad-dur was destroyed, though the foundations remained as the One Ring was intact. It was rebuilt by Sauron and finally destroyed in the year 3019 with the destruction of the One Ring.

The northwestern portion of Middle-Earth throughout the Ages of the Stars and the First Age of the Sun, Beleriand was made up of several regions including Hithlum, Doriath, and Nevrast. In the north of Beleriand, was Uttumno and Thangorodrim where lived Morgoth. The focus of The Silmarillion, most probably written by Bilbo Baggins, was in Beleriand, as were most of the battles and wars making up the struggle to regain the Silmarils. Beleriand was destroyed and sank beneath the waves at the end of the First Age of the Sun, during the struggle between the Valar and Morgoth. The only parts of Beleriand to survive, apart from some islands made up of mountaintops were Lindon and some parts of the Blue Mountains, the Ered Luin. Back to the Top


Cair Andros:
An island fortress north of Minas Tirith, belonging to Gondor, Cair Andros is shaped like a ship facing upstream. The name means Ship of Long Foam.

Caras Galadhon:
The chief city in Lothlorien.

Cirith Ungol:
The Spider Pass, near to Minas Morgul on the borders of Mordor. Cirith Ungol was the route chosen by Frodo, on the advice of Gollum, to enter Mordor. It was a high, narrow pass overlooked by a fortress at the top. As an added safeguard, there lived Shelob, the greatest of the giant spiders remaining in Middle-Earth. The route through Cirith Ungol, included two very long stairways and a branching orc tunnel where Shelob lived.

Carn Dum:
A fortress and city of the realm of Angmar. Back to the Top


The Dagorlad:
The Battle-plain. The Dagorlad was in front of the Black Gate and bordered on at least one side by the Dead Marshes, which had been creeping over the edges. At least two battles have been fought on the Dagorlad, before the War of the Ring: that of the Last Alliance in the year 3434 of the Second Age, and at least one battle with the Wainriders.

The Dead MarshesThe Dead Marshes:
The Dead Marshes are to the north-west of the Dagorlad. They gained this name after years of slow creeping over the edges of the graves on the Dagorlad.
The Two Towers, book four, chapter two: The Passage of the Marshes, page 289:
The hobbits soon found that what had looked like one vast fen was really an endless network of pools, and soft mires, and winding half-strangled watercourses.
Somehow, the faces of the Dead, could be seen especially at night, an Age later: (The Lord of the Rings, page 653)
They lie in all the pools, pale faces, deep deep under the dark water. I saw them: grim faces and evil, and noble faces and sad. Many faces proud and fair, and weeds in their silver hair. But all foul, all rotting, all dead. A fell light is in them.
Nobody knows by what dark magic these faces are still visible.

Dol Amroth:
City of Gondor and once a haven of the Elves, Dol Amroth is the main city of the Belfalas region.

Originally built during the Dark Years, by the men who were to become the "Dead Men of Dunharrow", Dunharrow was afterwards used as a stronghold and refuge during times of war by both Gondor and later Rohan.

A town to the immediate south of the Lonely Mountain, Dale was ruined by Smaug. After the death of Smaug and the Battle of the Five Armies, Dale was eventually rebuilt under the kingship of Bard. In the time of the War of the Ring, Dale's king was Brand, who fell soon before the end of the Ring.

Drudan Forest:
One of the few remaining places where the Druedain, survived at the time of the War of the Ring, though they were hunted as beasts, though King Theoden made a promise to one of the headmen, Ghan-buri-ghan, that they would no longer do so.

The realm of Thingol in Beleriand, Doriath was one of the greatest of the Elf-kingdoms. It was sacked by Dwarves after the death of Thingol. After which Dior Eluchil, his grandson became king. Dior was slain by the sons of Feanor and so ended the realm of Doriath. Within Doriath was Mengroth, the underground palace. Back to the Top


Ered Luin:
The Ered Luin are the Blue Mountains. During the First Age, this mountain range was the eastern boundary of Beleriand. At the end of the First Age, they were split by the gulf of Lhun. There were at least two dwarf-cities in the Blue Mountains during the First Age, and at least one partially survived as it is said that Dwarves still passed through the Shire on their way to their cities in the Blue Mountains.

Ered Lithui:
The Ash Mountains on the northern border of Mordor.

Ephel Duath:
The Mountains of Shadow on Mordor's western border. The only known pass through this range is Cirith Ungol, the Spider Pass, also known as the Morgul Pass.

The capital city of Rohan. Edoras apparently had a dike, wall and thorny fence surrounding it (The Lord of the Rings, pages 528-529):
"I see a white stream that comes down from the snows," he said. "Where it issues from the shadow of the vale a green hill rises upon the east. A dike and mighty wall and thorny fence encircle it. Within there rise the roofs of houses; and in the midst, set upon a green terrace, there stands aloft a great hall of Men. And it seems to my eyes that it is thatched with gold. The light of it shines far over the land. golden, too, are the posts of its doors.

Often called Lake-Town, Esgaroth was built on posts driven into the Long Lake. The original town was destroyed when Smaug fell upon it in his death. It was later rebuilt somewhat to the north.

The Emyn Muil:The Cliffs of the Emyn Muil
A region of fairly barren cliffs on each side of the Anduin River. At the base of the cliffs were often bogs and fens, The Lord of the Rings, page 627:
We can't get down, and if we did get down, we'd find all that green land a nasty bog, I'll warrant.
In earlier days the Emyn Muil were covered with trees, though they were gnarled and stunted, though by the time of the War of the Ring, few trees still lived. The Lord of the Rings pages 629-630:
Some way down they found a few gnarled and stunted trees, the first they had seen for days: twisted birch for the most part, with here and there a fir-tree. Many were dead and gaunt, bitten to the core by the eastern winds. Once in milder days there must have been a fair thicket in the ravine, but now, after some fifty yards, the trees came to an end, though old broken stumps straggled on almost to the clif's brink.

The Lonely Mountain. Erebor was first settled just after Moria was deserted, and later attracted the attention of Smaug, who until the Quest to destroy Smaug was successful in the year 2941 of the Third Age. After this Erebor thrived and continued to grow. There is no record of what end it finally came to, if any, Erebor may still be in existence.

During the Second Age of the Sun, Eregion, which was nigh to the West-Gate of Moria, was settled by the Elven-Smiths. It was ruined and abandoned in the year 1697 of the Second Age, during their war with Sauron. Back to the Top


Fornost Erain:
The capital of Arnor after Annuminas, Fornost was once captured by the forces of Angmar. Though retaken, it was abandoned as in that same year came the end of the North Kingdom as such. After abandonment, Fornost Erain was known as Deadmans Dike.

Fangorn ForestFangorn Forest:
The eastern remnant of the forests covering Middle-Earth in the Elder Days, Fangorn forest, and possibly the Old Forest, were the only remains of the forests of the Elder Days. Fangorn Forest was certainly the only one with the Shepherds of the Trees still surviving. Also called the Entwood, in Rohan, because of the Ents, who were the Shepherds of the Trees. Fangorn Forest was an obviously old forest, where there were some places that the original darkness still had not been lifted according to Treebeard.

Firien Wood:
The wood surrounding the Halfirien, which was also known as Amon Anwar, the Hill of Awe. Back to the Top


The South Kingdom, Gondor was founded in the year 3320 of the Second Age, by Elendil and his two sons ruled it until the War of the Last Alliance, when Elendil and Anarion were killed. Then Isildur became the High King of both kingdoms. The Kingship lasted until the year 2050 of the Third Age, when the last King died. After this the Stewards ruled in the name of the King, until the year 3019, when Aragorn took back the Kingship of both Arnor and Gondor.
Gondor had three main cities and several smaller ones. The main cities were:

     Minas Anor
     Minas Ithil
     Osgiliath (the capital until the year 1640)
Back to the Top


The Hornburg:
A Fortress in Rohan, probably built by the Men of Gondor, the Hornburg is a refuge in times of war. Untill the War of the Ring, the Hornburg had never yet fallen to an enemy, and it did not even then, though it was a close call, and only due to the Huorns and the Men of Erkenbrand. I do not know if it ever fell after the War of the Ring, though I think not.

A town in the Shire, Hobbiton was the location of Bag End. Back to the Top


Another fortress in Rohan, built by the Numenoreans, Isengard was extremely defendable, and the key to the defense of Rohan, as was discovered in the time of Helm Hammerhand, much to their dismay. It was always part of Gondor, even when Eorl was given the land surrounding it. Isengard was given to Saruman in the year 2759 of the Third Age, by the Steward Beren. Isengard was at least partially destroyed by the Ents in the year 3018 of the Third Age. In the language of Rohan, Isengard was Angrenost.

Ithilien was once a beautiful area of Gondor, often called the Garden of Gondor, though it was eventually abandoned after the taking of Minas Ithil. Ithilien was located between Minas Ithil and the Anduin. Even in the years of the War of the Ring, the hobbits could see the remaining beauty of Ithilien, though it was no longer tended and had fallen into ruin. After the War of the Ring, Ithilien was given to Faramir, by the King Elessar. Back to the Top

The home of Durin, the eldest of the Seven Fathers of the Dwarves, Khazad-dum was the greatest of the Dwarven mansions, especially after the destruction of Beleriand which partially destroyed Nogrod and Belegost. Many dwarves fled from Nogrod and Belegost to Khazad-dum, swelling its population. Khazad-dum was the only place where mithril could be found, but mithril was also the cause of their destruction, as in mining for mithril, they accidentally freed the Balrog. The Dwarves abandoned Khazad-dum in the year 1981 of the Third Age. After the Dwarves left, Sauron sent orcs to gather all the mithril, gold and jewels that could be found. The Elves called Khazad-dum Moria, the Black Chasm afterwards. It was in Moria that Gandalf fell fighting the Balrog.
There was a prophecy that one day the Dwarves would retake Moria, referred to in the following:

    - The Peoples of Middle-Earth, page 278:
    And the line of Dain prospered, and the wealth and renown of the kingship was renewed, until there arose again for the last time an heir of that House that bore the name of Durin, and he returned to Moria; and there was light again in deep places, and the ringing of hammers and the harping of harps, until the world grew old and the Dwarves failed and the days of Durin's race were ended.
    - The Lord of the Rings, page 341:
    So ended the attempt to retake Moria! It was valiant but foolish. The time is not come yet.

Minas Anor:
Minas AnorMinas Anor, the city of Anarion.The name translates to The Tower of the Setting Sun. One of the three main cities of Gondor, Minas Anor was renamed Minas Tirith, the Tower of Guard after Minas Ithil was taken by the Nazgul. It became the capital city after Osgiliath had started to be abandoned in the year 1640 of the Third Age.

Minas Ithil:
The twin city to Minas Anor, Minas Ithil was the city of Isildur and its name translates as The Tower of the Rising Moon, often just called The Tower of the Moon. It was taken by the Nazgul in the year 2000 of the Third Age and renamed, in Gondor, Minas Morgul, the Tower of Black Magic. It was a terrible place until the fall of Sauron, and judged by the King Elessar not fit to live near for long years after the War of the Ring.

Mordor, translated as, the Black Land, was the realm of Sauron, and where he forged the One Ring. This was Sauron's home from around the year 1000 of the Second Age, to the year 3019 of the Third Age, when Frodo destroyed the One Ring in Mount Doom.

The Moragai was the inner fence of Mordor, on the east. Lower than the Ephel Duath, the Moragai was not entirely barren, with thorny bushes, harsh grasses and biting flies.

Mathom House:
A museum in the Shire, the Mathom House was located in Michel Delving. Before Bilbo left the Shire, he had loaned his mithril coat to the Mathom House to display.

The home of Elu Thingol in Beleriand, Mengroth was built underground, like the stronghold of the Elves of Mirkwood. Mengroth was destroyed in the sack of Doriath.

The Meneltarma was the mountain at the centre of Numenor, used as a temple to Eru, left untouched by Men, Later, when Numenor sank beneath The Wave, it was said the top of Meneltarma remained an Island, but it was never found. Four times a year, in the appropriate times, the King led a procession to the top. This continued until the times of the King;s Men, when the hallow was neglected.

Mere of Dead Faces:The Dead Marshes
The Mere of Dead Faces in the Dead Marshes was a horrible place, especially at night, which was when Frodo, Sam and Gollum passed through. The Lord of the Rings, page 650:
On either side and in front wide fens and mires now lay, stretching away southward and eastward into the dim half-light. Mists curled and smoked from dark and noissome pools. The reek of them hung stifling in the still air. Far away, now almost due south, the mountain-walls of Mordor loomed, like a black bar of rugged clouds floating above a dangerous fog-bound sea.
This description fits the entire Dead Marshes, but goes with the painting on the right, which is of the Mere of Dead Faces. The Lord of the Rings, page 652:
When lights appeared Sam rubbed his eyes: he thought his head was going queer. He first saw one with the corner of his left eye, a wisp of pale sheen that faded away: but others appeared soon after: some like dimly shining smoke, some like misty flames flickering slowly above unseen candles; here and there they twisted like ghostly sheets unfurled by hidden hands.
The Lord of the Rings, page 653:
"There are dead things, dead faces in the water," he said with horror. "Dead faces!"
Gollum laughed. "The Dead Marshes, yes, yes: that is their name," he cackled. "You should not look in when the candles are lit."
"Who are they? What are they?" asked Sam shuddering, turning to Frodo, who was now behind him.
"I don't know," said Frodo in a dreamlike voice. "But I have seen them too, In the pools when the candles were lit. They lie in all the pools, pale faces, deep deep under the dark water. I saw them: grim faces and evil, and noble faces and sad. Many faces proud and fair, and weeds in their silver hair. But all foul, all rotting, all dead. A fell light is in them."

Minas Morgul:
Once, Minas Ithil, but was taken by Sauron and made into a place of horror: The Lord of the Rings page 730:
Upon the further side, some way within the valley's arms, high on a rock seat upon the black knees of the Ephel Duath, stood the walls and tower of Minas Morgul. All was dark about it, earth and sky, but it was lit with light. Not the imprisoned moonlight welling through the marble walls of Minas Ithil long ago, Tower of the Moon, fair and radiant in the hollow of the hills. Paler indeed than the moon ailing in some slow eclipse was the light of it now, wavering and blowing like a noissome exhalation of decay, a corpse-light, a light that illuminated nothing. In the walls and tower windows showed, like countless black holes looking inward into emptiness; but the topmost course of the tower revolved slowly, first one way and then another, a huge ghostly head leering into the night.
After the War of the Ring, Minas Morgul and Imlad Morgul were destroyed, though the valley was not safe to live in for many years after.

Misty Mountains:The Redhorn Pass in the Misty Mountains
The Silmarillion, Pages 62-63:
But the mountains were the Hithaeglir, the Towers of Mist upon the borders of Eriador; yet they were taller and more terrible in those days, and were reared by Melkor to hinder the riding of Orome.
That was what the Misty Mountains were like in the Ages of the Stars. Though of lesser height, they were still difficult to cross late in the Third Age, as was discovered by Bilbo and Frodo Baggins. Frodo by the Redhorn Pass and Bilbo and the Dwarves by the High Pass. The Company of the Ring were forced down again by blizzards and had to attempt the Mines of Moria. The Dwarves were forced to take shelter in a cave and captured by Orcs. Both groups made it safely through the mountains though.

Numenor:The Downfall of Numenor
The island given as a gift to the Edain at the end of the First Age of the Sun. It was given as a reward for their fight against Morgoth. Numenor was nearer to the Undying Lands than to Middle-Earth. Nevertheless, the Men of Numenor were not permitted to sail to either Tol Eressea or the Undying Lands. Instead they became great mariners and explored Middle-Earth. The Island of Numenor was in the form of a star with five arms, as can be seen in the picture to the right. A clearer view is given of the fragments of books remaining that have been gathered into the Unfinished Tales, for there is a map of Numenor as well as several tales surviving from the Third Age.
Near the end of the Second Age of the Sun Numenor was destroyed as told in the Alkallabeth. Only nine ships survived this disaster and of them came the realms of Arnor and Gondor, the realms in Exile.
Other names for Numenor include:

    -Andore, (the Land of Gift)
    -Atalante (The Downfallen. This name was only given after the Downfall, when Numenor was no more)
    - Elenna

The home of Finrod Felagund, Narogthrond was nigh to the river Narog in the First age of the Sun. It was destroyed by the dragon Glaurung.

A region in Beleriand on the coast. Back to the Top


The first capital city of Gondor, Osgiliath was decimated in the Plague, then the capital was moved to Minas Anor in the year 1640 of the Third Age. Osgiliath was abandoned by the time of the War of the Ring, and the bridge was destroyed in the year 3017-3018 as was told by Boromir at the Council of Elrond.

The tower and city within the ring of Isengard. Orthanc was first built by the Men of Gondor. Though the land surrounding was given to the Rohirrim, Isengard was retained by the Stewards of Gondor. In the time of the Steward Beren, the Keys of Orthanc were given to Saruman. At the end of the Third Age of the Sun, Sauruman had changed Orthanc and Isegard to a mockery of Barad-dur. Orthanc survived the attack of the Ents in the year 3018 and was given back to the King of the Reunited Kingdom, Aragorn. This was the site of one of the four palantiri until the year 3018 of the Third Age. Back to the Top


A harbour on the mouths of the Anduin river, this was the location of the King's fleet and also subject to attacks by the Corsairs of Umbar.

The Falls of Rauros are in the North-West of Gondor. Located on the Anduin River, the Falls of Rauros are preceded by the Argonath, the Gates of the Kings.

Also known as the Mark and the Riddermark, Rohand was formerly a part of Gondor, known as the plains of Calhenardon. It was ceded to Eorl by Cirion, then the Steward of Gondor. The Men of Rohan are famed horsemen and their horses are justly famous too. At the time of the War of the Ring, Rohan was beset on the West as well as on the East. For on the West was Saruman, and to the East, their allies, Gondor was fighting the Hosts of Sauron. They were victorious in the west, and arrived in time to make a difference in the Battle of the Pelennor Fields.
The capital of Rohan was Edoras, where Kings Hall, Meduseld, was.
There were several strongholds within Rohan, including Dunharrow and the Hornburg. Back to the Top


Sarn Ford:
A ford to the south of the Shire.

Sammath Naur:
The Chambers of Fire, within Orodruin. This was where Sauron forged the One Ring and at the end of the War of the Rign, the Ring was destroyed.

The southernmost area of the Shire. Back to the Top


The Shire:The central portion of the Shire
Located in the North-West of Middle-Earth, this is the country of the Hobbits. It was ceded to them by Argleb II in the year 1601 of the Third Age of the Sun. Originally consisting of four areas that they called Farthings, which were the Northfarthing, Westfarting, Southfarthing and Eastfarthing. Later the area of Buckland was added to the Shire. By the decree of King Elessar, early in the Fourth Age of the Sun, the Westmarch, including the Tower Hills was added to the Shire. By the decree of the King, no Men were to enter the Shire at all. Only two battles were ever fought in the Shire: The Battle of Greenfields, fought against orcs, in 2747 and the Battle of Bywater at the end of the War of the Ring in 3019.

Tol Brandir:
An island in the Anduin River. Its sides are so steep that no Man, Dwarf or Elf has ever set foot on it. It is between Amon Hen and Amon Lhaw.

The Towers of the Teeth:
Two towers built by the Men of Gondor after the War of the Last Alliance to prevent evil from entering into Mordor again. They were taken by Sauron and used to defend against invaders in the Morranon. Back to the Top


The plain within the Isenmouthe.

The northernmost realm of Harad. During the reign of the Kings of Gondor, Umbar acknowledged the sway of Gondor. In the Second Age of the Sun, Umbar was a haven for the Numenorean ships. The defeated rebels from the Kinslaying in the Third Age of the Sun fled to Umbar, whence came the Corsairs which were such a curse to Gondor until the end of the War of the Ring.
The fleet sent to war against Sauron from Numenor conquered him at Umbar. There was set a giant crystal in memorial. However, when Sauron returned, this symbol of his humiliation was thrown down.
