War of the Last Alliance

Conquest of Minas Ithil - Defense of Minas Anor and Osgiliath - Battle of Dagorlad - Siege of Barad-dûr


The Defense of Minas Anor and Osgiliath was a siege/battle between the Dúnedain of Gondor just before the formal formation of the Last Alliance.

HistoryEdit

After the loss of Minas IthilAnárion was able to assemble a large enough force to successfully prevent Sauron's forces from taking Osgiliath and Minas Anor. The enemy was driven from Ithilien and into the mountains. However, it was only a temporary relief as Sauron's forces would soon regroup to once again become a threat to Gondor, leading Elendil and Gil-galad to form the Last Alliance.[2][1][3]
