Main article: Mount Doom

Amon Amarth was a rarely used name for Orodruin, the flaming mountain in northern Mordor where Sauron forged the One Ring.

The name was given because the volcano was linked in ancient and little-understood prophecies with the final end of the Third Age, when the One Ring was found again.[1]

Etymology

Sindarin: amon, "hill" and amarth, "fate, doom".[2]
