Ettendales

The Ettendales was a cold, frozen land north of Rivendell, adjacent to the Ettenmoors and the Coldfells,

HistoryEdit

The Ettendales was a dangerous land inhabited by Trolls and Giants. These were cold lands far to the north of Rivendell and little known to any but the Trolls that inhabited them. Aragorn's grandfather Arador had ventured into these hills and dales but he was captured and killed by the Snow-trolls that lurked there.[1]

EtymologyEdit

Ettendales are literally 'giant-valleys'. It's unclear whether the location in fact is a home to giants.

'etten'- comes from Old English eoten, meaning Giant.[citation needed]
