Esteldín Library Exterior
The ruins hold a special place in the hearts of the Rangers in these dark times, for as the power of Angmar again builds in the north, the Rangers remember all too well the destruction caused by the Witch-king in his war against the mighty North Kingdom so many years ago. From this secluded location, it is said that the Rangers coordinate their efforts and amass the findings of their research and travels in order to enact their plans against the evil that again rises in the North. Of particular note is the Library of Arnor, a central depository of all preserved lore of the Dúnedain of the North.
The location of Esteldín is created from inferences found within the text of The Lord of the Rings, clues that lead to a dwelling place of the Dúnedain of the North, where Aragorn's mother went to spend her final days among her own people. — [1]
