Last Gate

Revision as of 19:54, 5 August 2010 by Mithbot (Talk | contribs)

The Last Gate was the last of Gondolin's gates and was last not only in the order they were encountered by one entering the city, but also the last to be built. Originally, Gondolin had just six gates, with the Golden Gate being the final entrance to the Turgon's Hidden City. After the narrow escape of the Gondolindrim from the Nírnaeth Arnoediad, another, even stronger gate was made from steel and built across the entrance to the Orfalch Echor.
