Escaping from Moria, the Fellowship of the Ring arrived at Lothlórien, bringing the One Ring. Soon after, a band of hundred Orcs (presumably Orcs of the Misty Mountains pursuing them) crossed the Nimrodel. The wardens used feigned voices and led them into a trap, where a regiment or so of the Galadhrim were sent out, and destroyed them.
 The assaults
The third and last attack was made seven days later, on 22 March. They caused much destruction on the wood's borders, but the valiant Galadhrim routed them utterly, and the Realm remained safe for the following days until the passing of Sauron.
