Revision as of 23:46, 26 November 2006 by Quidon88 (Talk | contribs)

Barad Eithel ('Tower of the Well', Sind.) was the mountain fortress of Fingolfin and his son Fingon, set in the eastern foothills of the Ered Wethrin, at the source of the River Sirion. It was here that the Battle of Unnumbered Tears took place, and where Fingon was slain, givingMorgoth the chance to take control over the chief stronghold of both Mithrim and Dor-lómin.
