Line 1: Line 1:
From the southern slopes of the [[Lonely Mountain]], two long ridges of rock were thrust out, forming the narrow valley in which the town of [[Dale]] stood. At the head of this valley was the wide arched entrance of the [[Kingdom under the Mountain]], the Gate of Erebor. Out of the gateway sprang the stream that grew into the River [[Running]].
#REDIRECT [[Front Gate]]
The gate was the site of at least two sieges. In the year he reclaimed the Lonely Mountain, King [[Thorin]] needed to defend his ancient home against [[Elves]] and [[Men]], and built a strong wall across the Gateway, though at that time battle was avoided. His successor [[Dáin II Ironfoot]] was less fortunate: he fell in battle during the [[War of the Ring]] at the threshold of the Gate, but it protected his people in the short and unsuccessful siege that followed.
