Armies moving over the Pelennor Fields during the Battle of the Pelennor Fields.

After Minas Ithil had fallen and was renamed Minas Morgul, the Pelennor Fields were walled by the Rammas Echor, to prevent attacks from Mordor.

During the War of the Ring, the Pelennor Fields were the location of the Battle of the Pelennor Fields, when Sauron's Orc and Easterling armies overran the Rammas Echor and besieged the city.

It was on these fields that Théoden King was slain, along with the Witch-king of Angmar, and that most of the great battle was fought. After the War of the Ring, the Rammas Echor was rebuilt by the Dwarves of the Glittering Caves.[1]

Portrayal in adaptationsEdit

In the live action movie trilogy by Peter Jackson, Pelennor Fields is portrayed as an uncultivated, beaten down grassland. The perimeter wall is also nowhere to be found.
