Ras Morthil

Revision as of 19:50, 27 June 2012 by Morgan (Talk | contribs)

Ras Morthil was the last mountain on a southern spur of the White Mountains. It stood on the cape of Andrast. The mountain chain that ran along the length of the cape was, for a long time, the home of tribes of the Drúedain, but was vacated by the end of the Third Age.

Etymology

Ras is a Sindarin word for "horn" (cf. Caradhras); Morthil likely contains the element mor, "dark, black".
