Conquest of Minas Ithil - Defense of Osgiliath - Battle of Dagorlad - Siege of Barad-dûr


The Battle of Dagorlad was a major battle of the War of the Last Alliance in the late Second Age.

History

The battle took place in the year SA 3434. It was fought between the army of the Last Alliance under Gil-galad and Elendil against an army of Orcs and other creatures loyal to Sauron, on the plains of Dagorlad just outside Mordor between Emyn Muil and Cirith Gorgor. The Last Alliance joined with Anárion's army from Gondor, which was holding Osgiliath and Minas Ithil, and they marched to Dagorlad. Oropher and Amdír, annoyed by Gil-galad's command, prematurely charged at the enemy and were driven back, and Amdír along with many Galadhrim Warriors died in the Dead Marshes. Eventually, the Alliance was able to drive back the the enemy forces and win the battle, proceeding then to attack the Black Gate and advance into Udûn.

Etymology

The word Dagorlad means "Battle plain", from the Sindarin dagor ("battle") and lad ("plain, valley").[4][5]
