The Beacon Hills Taur Drúadan


The second of the two great nations of Men founded in Middle-earth by Elendil after the Downfall of Númenor, the other being Arnor in the north, Gondor was located to the west of Mordor, on the Bay of Belfalas.

Gondor was at first ruled jointly by Elendil's sons Isildur and Anárion. Both Elendil and Anárion were lost in the Siege of Barad-dûr, and Isildur soon afterwards in the Disaster of the Gladden Fields, and so the Kingship of Gondor fell on Anárion's son Meneldil. Thus, the Kings of Gondor were descendants of Anárion through many generations until the time of Eärnur.

When Eärnur was lost in Minas Morgul in III 2050, the rule of Gondor was taken up by the King's Steward, Mardil Voronwë; the death of Eärnur was not certain, and so Mardil and the Stewards who followed him pledged to rule 'until the King comes back'. Unlikely though this seemed, it happened almost a thousand years later in III 3019 when Aragorn Elessar, descendant by right in the line of Isildur, elder brother of Anárion, reclaimed the throne of Gondor.

Its name means "Land of Stone", from Sindarin gond (stone) + (n)dor (land), most likely given to it because of the Ered Nimrais and other mountain chains in the land.

Now, the dark clouds of the Dawnless Day loom overhead as Minas Tirith to the south is awaiting the coming siege. (These were first visible, if one looked to the south east, billowing up in the Dead Marshes.) Join the Ride of the Rohirrim and fight in the subsequent Battle of Pelennor Fields with Rohan going to the aid of Gondor.

The Eastern half of Far Anórien, Taur Drúadan is home to the Woses (descendants of the Drúedain), who live within its entangling forests.
