Amon Ereb was a hill on the southern plains of East Beleriand.


Amon Ereb was located between Ramdal and the river Gelion.[1] The hill had gentle slopes stood alone and took on the appearance of something much more mightier than it actually was on its own.[2]

History Edit

During the First Battle of Beleriand, Amon Ereb was known as the place where King Denethor of the Nandor was surrounded by an army of Orcs, and made his last stand and then perished.[3] Amon Ereb was the highest point in the plains and the easternmost hill of Andram. It hence had tremendous strategic importance in the War of the Jewels as it overlooked the eastern passage around the Long Wall of the Andram, guarding the northern ways to Taur-im-Duinath.[4] Later, Caranthir fortified the hill following the Dagor Bragollach in an attempt to guard his escape into the south.[5] After the Nírnaeth Arnoediad, the Sons of Fëanor withdrew to Amon Ereb.
