The Fall of Dol Guldur was an epic battle of the War of the Ring, culminating the Rhovanion Campaign. The usual guardians, the Nazgûl, were gone, and the Orcs had been defeated numerous times throughout the rest of the Campaign. Celeborn led the assault. It was captured. After the battle, Galadriel came and threw down its walls, purifying it.
