Events Prior to the Battle
Due primarily to opposing cavalry, Ondoher's army was defeated. Ondoher and his eldest son Artamir were killed, and the Wainriders were victorious. They camped and rejoiced on the battlefield after the end, until the Battle of the Camp.
Though J.R.R. Tolkien never specifically names this battle, in the Unfinished Tales it is said that Adrahil sent messengers to "find Eärnil, if they could, and inform him of the disaster of the Morannon. . .".
