Lore

Also known as Aglarond, the Glittering Caves is a series of jewelled caverns beneath the White Mountains behind Helm's Deep which served as a refuge for the Rohirrim women, children and elderly during the Battle of the Hornburg. Following the destruction of the Deeping Wall several Rohirrim including Éomer and Gimli were forced to retreat into the caves, defending it against Saruman's Orcs. When Gimli first entered the caves was taken by its beauty, and following the conclusion of the War of the Ring he established a Dwarf colony here and was crowned Lord of the Glittering Caves.[1][2][3][4][5]
