War of the Elves and Sauron

Siege of Eregion - First Siege of Imladris - Battle of the Gwathló


The Battle of the Gwathló was the decisive battle of the War of the Elves and Sauron that brought an end to Sauron's power for many centuries.

HistoryEdit

After being driven off to the south-east of Eriador after heavy losses at Sarn Ford, Sauron's forces regrouped and joined with his forces in Tharbad where they were assailed by the pursuing forces of Gil-galad, and then by a force of Númenóreans coming up through the Greyflood and attacking from their rear.

In the battle Sauron and his armies were utterly routed. The remaining survivors narrowly escaped but were assailed by Elrond just east of Calenardhon and destroyed, leaving Sauron with little more than a bodyguard to safely escape back into Mordor.

The ensuing victory left Sauron crippled but not defeated and being unconquered he slowly rebuilt himself throughout the ages until the thirty-third century, when he challenged Ar-Pharazôn for the over-lordship of Middle-earth.[1][2]
