Dol Baran

As depicted in The Lord of the Rings Online.

Dol Baran was a hill in Rohan.

Dol Baran lay between Isengard and the Gap of Rohan at the southernmost foot of the Misty Mountains.[1] It was covered with heather.[2]

HistoryEdit

Dol Baran was the place where Rohirrim had made a camp and Pippin looked into the Palantír of Orthanc (a different location than in the third film), and also where a Fellbeast was seen flying, ridden by a Ringwraith.[2][3]

EtymologyEdit

Dol Baran is Sindarin for 'Golden-brown hill'.[4]

Portrayal in adaptationsEdit

The Lord of the Rings OnlineEdit

It's only other appearance is in The Lord of the Rings Online, where it is a site of skirmish between Rohirrim and Dunlending forces.
