Framsburg was a small hamlet located on the northeastern edge of the Misty Mountains, on the other side of the spur from Angmar. It was the old capital of the Éothéod, founded by their brave Chieftain Fram, the slayer of Scatha, in TA 2000. It was abandoned around TA 2509 when the Éothéod traveled south to their new homes in Calenardhon, which later became known as Rohan.[1][2]

The ruins of Framsburg apparently survived into the late Third Age and early Fourth Age, though nothing further is known of it.
