File Description

This is a 2 v 2 fortress map.

The city was once the capital of Arnor, on the shores of Lake Evendim in the north of Eriador. The city was founded by Elendil near where the lake gives rise to the Baranduin (Brandywine) River. It survived for nearly a thousand years. In the early days of Arnor, it was one of the glories of Middle-earth. Soon after its founding, though, the numbers of the Dúnedain of the North began to dwindle. The population of Annúminas seems to have fallen throughout its history, until it became deserted and when Arnor was divided in 861 the kings removed to Fornost to the east.

At the time of the War of the Ring, Annúminas had lain in ruins for more than 2,000 years. There are hints in Tolkien's writings, however, that King Elessar, the coronation name of Aragorn, refounded the city and may even have made it his northern capital early in the Fourth Age. He went to live there in F.A. 17.

When Elrond first travelled to Gondor in the dawn of the Fourth Age to give Arwen to the new King as his bride, he also gives him Sceptre of Annúminas, the symbol of royalty of Arnor.
