Its lord was Gwaihir the Windlord.
Significance in The HobbitEdit
Significance in the Lord of the RingsEdit
By the time of the War of the Ring, the Eagles Eyrie in the Misty Mountains was presumably still the home of the great eagles. Gwaihir probably flew from here on his way to the Pinnacle of Orthanc where Gandalf was held captive. It was probably from here that they flew to the aid of Gondor in the Battle of the Morannon, and then to rescue Frodo and Sam from the devastation of Mount Doom.
