Amon Gwareth

Revision as of 00:48, 5 August 2008 by Sage (Talk | contribs)

Amon Gwareth (S. amon "hill" + gwareth "watching") was the hill that stood in the valley of Tumladen, within the Encircling Mountains, on which Turgon built the city of Gondolin.

Etymology

Christopher Tolkien says that his father later changed the name to Amon Gwared but this change did not make it in the published Silmarillion.

Gwared fits better the gerundic form of Sindarin verbs.
