Main Gate of Minas Tirith2

The Main Gate leading into the courtyard.

The Main Gate of Minas Tirith was the city's primary entrance point and its only weakness.

War of the RingEdit

During the Siege of Minas Tirith the Mordor armies attempted to smash it down with a conventional battering ram, but the brave defenders beat them back. In response, the Witch King ordered Grond, aided by his sorcery, to destroy the gates, which succeeded, resulting in his confrontation with Gandalf .



Gimli, the dwarf who rebuilt the gate with mithril and steel.

After the Ring was destroyed and Aragorn crowned King of Gondor, Gimli rebuilt the gate using Mithril, and steel making it unbelievably strong and nigh impregnible.
