Seven Gates of Gondolin

image

The¬†Seven Gates of Gondolin¬†were seven mighty gates guarding the¬†Orfalch Echor. They were built by¬†King¬†Turgon¬†to protect¬†Gondolin¬†from invasion; however, it was not through these that the host of¬†Morgoth¬†came in the¬†Fall of Gondolin. It was through these that¬†Tuor¬†and¬†Voronw√ꬆpassed to get into¬†Tumladen.

Each of the gates had their own form and special guard. The gates are listed below, from the end of the Orfalch furthest from Gondolin to the one bordering Tumladen.

Battle of Osgiliath

Sauron’s attack on Osgiliath¬†occurred on 20 June,¬†T.A.¬†3018, and was later recognized as the beginning of the¬†War of the Ring, for¬†Sauron¬†had two purposes in making this assault:

  • First, Sauron wished to test the strength and preparedness of¬†Denethor¬†(which was found to be greater than he hoped).
  • Second, Sauron’s other and greater purpose was to make the appearance of the¬†Nazg√Ľl¬†seem to be only part of his war policy against¬†Gondor, in order to conceal from the¬†Wise¬†their mission to hunt for¬†the One Ring.

At the¬†Council of Elrond,¬†Boromir¬†recounted this battle as a sudden attack in which the men of Gondor were outnumbered by the forces of Mordor with their allies, the¬†Easterlings¬†and the¬†Haradrim. However, he attributed Gondor’s defeat to a power that had not been felt before, issuing from a great black horseman. Only a remnant of Gondor’s eastern force survived.

The last bridge across the Anduin was defended by a company led by Boromir and Faramir until the structure was destroyed. Only the two brothers and two others survived by swimming.

After the eastern portion of Osgiliath was taken and the bridge broken, Sauron broke off the assault, ordering the Nazg√Ľl to begin their search for the Ring.

Biographical Information


Family and Physical Description



Argon
¬†was the fourth child of¬†Fingolfin, First High King of the¬†√Ďoldor¬†in¬†Beleriand.

History

His mother was¬†Anair√ę, and his brothers were¬†Fingon¬†and¬†Turgon. He had an older sister,¬†Aredhel.

His¬†Quenya¬†name was¬†Arak√°no¬†(“High Commander”), named so partially for his impetuous character. Argon set foot on¬†Middle-earth¬†with his father and brothers, but he was killed during the¬†Battle of the Lammoth.¬†Argon distinguished himself during the fighting by hewing a path through his foes and slaying the captain of the¬†Orcs.

Etymology

Argon is the Sindarin name of Arakáno although he never used it. It was devised posthumously for him in the records. It is recorded that this later became a popular name under the Eldar.

 Legendarium

Argon does not appear in the published¬†Silmarillion¬†at all, as he only came to light in very late writings by¬†Tolkien. His character was developed as Tolkien devised the genealogies. At first he fell in the fighting at¬†Alqualond√ꬆand then he perished while crossing the¬†Helkarax√ꬆbefore his death was set in the¬†Battle of the Lammoth.
