Gate of Mordor

Revision as of 08:14, 30 November 2005 by Hyarion (Talk | contribs)

A term for the defended pass in the northwest of Mordor, and great Black Gate - the Morannon - that protected it. The Gates opened onto a narrow valley, Udûn, and were highly defensible. Indeed, they were only successfully assaulted once in their history, by the armies of the Last Alliance.
