The Ettenmoors also known as the Troll-fells were a highland region of Eriador which was west of the Misty Mountains, located north of the Coldfells and Rivendell and southeast of Mount Gram. The land was wild, untamed, misty, and sinister, and many evil creatures dwelt there.
The Ettenmoors had been a peaceful part of the Dúnedain kingdom of Arnor until the middle of the Third Age when, during the Angmar War, the breakaway kingdom of Rhudaur became a vassal of the Witch-King of Angmar. After the war, the Witch-King fled to the Ettenmoors after his defeat at the Battle of Fornost. At that time the Ettenmoors were mainly ruled by Hillmen, Goblins, and Orc chieftains, and was home to Giants, Goblins, Trolls, Dragons, Orcs, Wargs, White Wolves, and Barrow-wights.
Appearances in AdaptationsEdit
The Ettenmoors appear in the various film versions of The Lord of the Rings as well as in video games The Lord of the Rings: The Battle for Middle-earth II, The Lord of the Rings: War in the North, and The Lord of the Rings Online.

- The name Ettenmoors can be a reference to the land Ettinsmoor in Narnia. This can be related to the close bond between C.S. Lewis and Tolkien.
