Ettenmoors by Rob Alexander

The Ettenmoors were a mountainous, wild, and untamed land that lay north of Rivendell. It was here that the Witch-king of Angmar fled after his defeat in the Battle of Fornost. It was the home of Trolls, and maybe some Giants and Goblins.

It is speculated that Mount Gram, from where a host of Goblins attacked the Shire, was located in the Ettenmoors.

Etymology

The word etten means 'Giants' and related to the word Ent. It is not known however if the name refers to the mysterious Giants seen in The Hobbit.
