Linhir

Revision as of 02:24, 30 October 2006 by Narfil Palùrfalas (Talk | contribs)

Linhir was a town in southern Gondor (specifically Lamedon), at the fords of the River Gilrain, near to the Mouths of Anduin.

Angbor, the Lord of Lamedon, was here besieged by the Haradrim and Corsairs during the War of the Ring. After the coming of Aragorn and the Grey Company (with, of course, the Army of the Dead), terror came upon their assailants, and they fled. The Gondorians fled as well; all save the stout-hearted Angbor. But the Corsairs were driven back to Pelargir, where they were defeated.
