The Hills of Evendim, or Emyn Uial in Sindarin, were a series of hills located in northern Eriador.

The hills began about a hundred Númenórean miles north of the Shire in northern Eriador. At the southern end was the city of Annúminas, the first capital of Arnor, at Lake Evendim. The Brandywine River flowed out of this lake. The river Lhûn also had a tributary beginning in the hills.


Second Age

In the Second Age, when the Men of Númenor first returned to Middle-earth, the Hills of Evendim were populated by Men related to the ancestors of the Edain. For this reason, the Númenóreans later settled nearby, and the hills formed the core of the later kingdom of Arnor.

Third Age

As depicted in The Lord of the Rings Online

After the establishments of the Kingdoms in Exile by Elendil and his sons, the Men of Evendim merged with the Dúnedain, becoming the people of Arnor together with non-Edain Men like the Men of Bree. When Arnor became divided into three separate kingdoms, the Hills of Evendim were part of the kingdom of Arthedain. At the end of the wars with Angmar in TA 1975, the cavalry of Gondor led by King Eärnur passed through here on their way to break the ranks of the Witch-king of Angmar's forces.[1]
