Mountains of Angmar
|Mountains of Angmar|

|Description||A mountain range, where at its eastern end the Witch King's fortress of Carn Dûm lay.|
Orc of the Mountains
Besides the Witch-king, Orcs and other evil creatures lived in the mountains. Fallen-Men (Probably Men of Forodwaith from the North) lived also on the Northern and Southern feet. The Witch-king was defeated at the Battle of Fornost in T.A. 1974, and Carn Dûm was sieged in T.A. 1975, which ended the evil empire. Orcs, likely still lived throughout the Mountains of Angmar during the rest of the Third Age and the late Fourth Age. They were more than likely wiped-out by king Aragorn II of the Reunited Kingdom.
