Dagorlad was a vast plain in the southeastern part of Rhovanion near Mordor in Middle-earth.

Dagorlad lies between the Emyn Muil and the Cirith Gorgor, and is largely a treeless wasteland, bereft of life and beauty.[1]

HistoryEdit

Dagorlad's name in Sindarin is in reference to the major battle between the army of the Last Alliance and the hordes of Mordor at the end of the Second Age. The area of this battle, full of death and rotting corpses, is now known as the Dead Marshes. Although the bodies of the dead are long gone, their ghastly shapes can still be seen floating ethereally beneath the surface of the blackish waters of the swamp known as the Dead Marshes.[1]

It was also the site of many battles between the armies of Gondor and the Wainriders between the years TA 1899 and TA 1944.[2]

EtymologyEdit

The word Dagorlad means 'battle plain' in the Sindarin language.[2]

NotesEdit

In Peter Jackson's movie adaptation of the Lord of the Rings film trilogy, Dagorlad is misspelled as Dagorland on various maps shown in the films, and in the appendices of the special extended DVD editions.
