Trolls, Giants, Dragons, Bears, Wargs, Orcs and naturally THE WITCH KING OF ANGMAR
"It is ever so with the issues that males start: there's a frost in Spring or a blight in summer season, they usually fail in their promise" (LotR III, p. 182).
Elendil and his heirs prepared kingdoms after they got here to Middle-earth from Numenor; Gondor within the South, and Arnor within the North. either have been reasonable and filthy rich kingdoms firstly of the 3rd Age. at present the historical past of the 2 kingdoms parted; the superstar of Gondor rose, yet that of Arnor fell into darkness. forces introduced the destruction of the North state. the 1st was once the waning of the Dunedain who dwelt in Arnor. the second one, and much higher used to be the shadow that got here from the land of Angmar. the lads of Arnor withstood the evil strength of the Witch King for 6 lengthy centuries, a tribute to the power and gear of the Dunedain of the North.
Arnor had suffered relatively little within the struggle opposed to Sauron on the end of the second one Age, and the dominion must have prospered. even though the numbers of the Dunedain were diminished, they have been nonetheless nice. The weather of Arnor was once light and the land was once fertile and freed from enemies. For a number of hundred years issues went good, however the air of Eriador appeared unwholesome for the descendants of Numenor. Arnor fell into decline lengthy ahead of the land held any whisper of the shadow of Angmar. For purposes unknown the Dunedain deserted their capital of Annuminas upon the beaches of Lake Nennuial, and withdrew to the lesser fort urban of Fornost.
The state of Arnor used to be doomed to "a frost in Spring, and a blight in summer season. " The heirs of the dominion may not agree at the succession to the throne of Arnor within the 9th century of the 3rd Age. In T. A. 861 the energy of the northern realm was once divided into 3 kingdoms: Cardolan, Rhudaur, and Arthedain. The quarreling persisted; Rhudaur and Cardolan contested the ownership of the tower of Amon Sul and its Palantir. The watch on evil slept within the north; males became inwards and anxious themselves with their very own affairs. The rumours of evil multiplying within the mountains didn't curiosity them; for Arthedain and Cardolan at the very least, the mountains have been a ways off. None gave their awareness to the unpromising valley in a northern fork of the Misty Mountains.
The Witch King arose in Angmar through the realm of Malvegil of Arthedain, a while among T. A. 1272-1349. males turned conscious of the transforming into evil within the mountains, yet Angmar was once nonetheless getting ready its energy. No attacks at the Dunedain got here until eventually Argeleb, the son of Malvegil, assumed the throne.
The subsequent sixty years have been darkish ones for the Dunedain of the North. The Dunedain of Rhudaur have been pushed out by way of evil hillmen in league with Angmar and Argeleb used to be slain in conflict. jointly Arthedain and Cardolan held the elements Hills opposed to Angmar. In 1409 T. A. the Witch King of Angmar published his deadliest attack. Amon Sul used to be raised and burned and the Dunedain have been pressured to escape westward. Cardolan was once laid to waste. aid got here to the Dunedain from the Elves of the gray Havens, Rivendell, and Lorien. The armies of Angmar have been repelled from Fornost and the North Downs, and compelled to withdraw to Angmar. The shadow of the North used to be contained for a time.
The land of Angmar is among the grimmest locations in all of Middle-earth. it's not black and twisted like Mordor, yet heartbreakingly chilly and barren. It lies in a northern fork within the Western Misty Mountains, and within the jap Misty Mountains. Little task is established upon the barren simple among the fork within the mountains; the border safeguard of guys is decided within the rolling hills upon the sting of the low plateau. those males watch the lengthy border street that runs from Carn Dûm to the southern tip of Angmar. The orcs want the security of the tunnels within the mountains. within the East the Witch King has no border safeguard; the mountains bar access into Angmar from that path, other than to people who comprehend the orcish tunnels.
