The Lord of the Rings Middle Earth Places: Tower of Orthanc


Tower of Orthanc:
- Appears in The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers and The Return of the King
- The tower is located at the center of Isengard

In The Fellowship of the Ring
Gandalf rides to Isengard and consults with Saruman in the Tower of Orthanc. After Gandalf turns down Saruman's offer to join him, Gandalf founds himself imprisoned on top of the tower. He is rescued by Gwaihir, Lord of the Eagles.

In The Two Towers
Saruman communicates with Sauron from Orthanc using the Palantir. Later, he accepts the allegiance of the Wild Men and then receives a report from Gríma on Rohan and the arrival of Aragorn and Gandalf. At the end of the film, Saruman finds himself trapped within the tower after the Ents overrun Isengard.

In The Return of the King:
Aragorn, Gandalf and others ride to Isengard to find the Ents in command. Gandalf tries to speak to Saruman, who eventually appears, attacks Gandalf, scoffs at his words, belittles Gríma, is stabbed by Gríma and falls from the Tower to his death.
