The Cross-roads of the Fallen King where the point in the land of Ithilien were the road running northward from the Harad (Harad Road) was crossed by the east-west road from Osgiliath to Minas Ithil (later Minas Morgul).
When Frodo, Sam, and Gollum came to the Cross-roads they were in a belt of trees of vast size. Next to the road leading to Osgiliath they found the statue befouled by the Orcs. The head had been knocked off and replaced by a stone effigy, but seeing it gave Frodo hope, for the head was crowned with flowers.
Sometime later, in the evening of March 18, a vanguard of Army of the West passed by the Cross-roads. Aragorn ordered a fanfare of trumpeteers and ceremoniously reclaimed the lands in the name of the Lords of Gondor. Soldiers broke the defiling stone-head and restored the statue also washing the scrawls away.
