CreatedFirst Age
DestroyedLate Second Age either by Orodruin or Orcs

Iorbad was a Southlander village that was located within the Southlands of Middle-earth during the late Second Age. Iorbad was invented for The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power by Amazon Studios.

History[edit | edit source]

During the late Second Age, the inhabitants of Iorbad were the last to flee to the Watchtower of Ostirith in order to be protected from the Orcs that were lead by Adar. The village was presumably destroyed during the eruption of Orodruin if it was not already destroyed by Orcs as Hordern was.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

Iorbad is most likely a Sindarin word meaning old pathway, being possibly comprised of the elements Iaur ("old") and Bâd ("pathway").
