Amon Lanc, the Naked Hill, was a hill in the southern parts of Greenwood the Great. After a millennium of the Third Age had passed, Sauron came to Amon Lanc and built a stronghold there. The hill and fortress were then together called Dol Guldur, and the wood it which it stood became known as Mirkwood.[1]

Etymology

Amon Lanc is a Sindarin name, consisting of amon ("hill") + lanc ("naked").[1]
