Mountains of Angmar
Physical Description
TypeMountain range
LocationNorthern Eriador, west of Mount Gundabad
Orc of the Mountains
DescriptionA mountain range, where at its western end the Witch King's fortress of Carn Dûm lay.

The Mountains of Angmar was a mountain range that lay to the west of Mount Gundabad, home to the Witch-king of Angmar who ruled from his capital Carn Dûm on the western tip of the mountain range.

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, in T.A. 1975 Angmar no longer existed. 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.
