The Battle of the Crossings of Erui was the last battle of the Kin-strife of Gondor.

History Edit

After a decade of cruel rule by Castamir the Usurper, the people of Gondor rebelled, and the rightful king Eldacar of Gondor returned to his Kingdom from the north in TA 1447. Castamir and his men were cornered at the Crossings of the river Erui, on the road from Minas Tirith to Pelargir, and Eldacar personally killed Castamir there. The Castamir's heirs were then besieged in Pelargir after the victory, eventually fleeing to Umbar. However, many Dúnedain of pure Númenórean blood were killed at Erui.[2][1][3]
