Morgul Vale

Revision as of 21:28, 29 August 2006 by Dwarf Lord (Talk | contribs)

Morgul Vale (Imlad Morgul in Sindarin), was the valley of the Morgulduin River in the western Mountains of Shadow. At its outflow into Ithilien stood the fortress of Minas Morgul ("Tower of Dark Sorcery"). The name was only used in the later Third Age, after the Nazgûl captured the fortress of Minas Ithil and turned it into the Tower of Dark Sorcery.
