Gorgoroth Plains


Gorgoroth Plains:
- Appears in The Fellowship of the Ring and The Return of the King


In The Fellowship of the Ring:
At the end of the Second Age the Last Alliance of Elves and Men defeated the Dark Forces of Mordor at the Battle of Dagorlad. They then entered Mordor and besieged Sauron on the Gorgoroth Plains. In that final struggle Gil-galad, King of the Elves, and Elendil, King of Gondor, were killed before Sauron was defeated when Isildur cut the One Ring of Power from his hand with the shard of Narsil.


In The Return of the King:
Frodo and Sam disguise themselves in Orcish armor because the Gorgoroth Plains are covered by thousands of Orcs until they empty out of Mordor through the Black Gate. Frodo and Sam are then able to cross the Gorgoroth Plains to Mt. Doom.
