Lore

Naerband, also known as the Direhold[note 1], was the greatest of Sauron's prisons. Its warden was the Uruk Thraknûl.[1] When Orodruin erupted and the Ghâshghurm formed, Naerband was super-heated by its proximity to the lava. Many prisoners were burnt alive within. [2]

Notes

  1. Translation of Sindarin naer "dreadful, lamentable" + band "prison, custody" [1]
