Edoras was built at the end of the valley of Harrowdale, which lay under the great mountain Starkhorn. The river Snowbourn flowed past the city on its way west towards the Entwash. As Rohan consisted of mostly small villages and farmsteads, Edoras was the closest thing Rohan had to a city, and held the Golden Hall of Meduseld. It was here that Aragorn, Gimli, Legolas, and Gandalf met with King Théoden.
Portrayal in adaptationsEdit
In the filmsEdit
- Edoras may have inspired the city of Whiterun in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, as its layout is very similar to that of Edoras.
