  • The Attack on the Woodland Realm was a small battle of the War of the Ring.


    On June 20, 3018, Sauron attacked the Woodland Realm. Although Thranduil led his forces to victory, Gollum, who had previously been imprisoned in the dungeons (entrusted into Thranduil's keeping by Aragorn under orders from Gandalf), escaped.

    When Legolas recounts the event at the Council of Elrond, he states that it was an orchestrated event between Sauron and Gollum to ensure Gollum's escape. He states that Gollum had been allowed to climb a tree, and at this time, Orcs from Dol Guldur ambushed them, and all of Gollum's guards were either captured or slain.

    This is the earliest event in the War of the Ring.
