Mount Gram

Mount Gram was one of the peaks adjoining to the Misty Mountains by its southern roots leading into the Ettenmoors.[1]


The mountain was long inhabited by a group of Orcs led by their chief (until the year 2747 of the Third Age), Golfimbul. They terrorized some of the inhabitants of eastern Eriador which included the Shire.

In TA 2747, the growing troops of goblins from Mount Gram attacked the Shire and so caused the Battle of Greenfields. Those orcs fell in battle against Bandobras Took and their leader Golfimbul was killed by him.[2][3]

Portrayals in adaptationsEdit

Video gamesEdit

In the video game The Lord of the Rings: War in the North, Tharzog was said to be chieftain of Mount Gram.

Mount Gram itself is not accessible in The Lord of the Rings Online, but the foot of Mount Gram in the Ettenmoors serves as a home base for the forces of Angmar in the game's player versus monster player area.

And in The Lord of the Rings: The Battle for Middle-earth IIGorkil the Goblin King had his fortress in the Ettenmoors, being the King of Mount Gram after Golfimbul; told of in the Evil Campaign.
