The Withered Heath was a region at the eastern extreme of the Grey Mountains at the time of the Lord of the Rings. There, the Grey Mountains broke into two spurs, north and south. Between these spurs lay the Withered Heath.[1]

HistoryEdit

Smaug half body

Smaug, Greatest of the Dragons of the Withered Heath as shown in The Hobbit films.

The Withered Heath was a burned, blackened valley and known for being a breeding ground of the Great Worms and Serpents. The Dragons lived and nurtured around the Withered Heath. Smaug the Golden terrorized the Dwarven Kingdom of Lonely Mountain as well as Dale, a Kingdom of Men. Smaug the Golden was the most infamous Dragon from the Withered Heath. In the twenty eighth century of the Third Age, he destroyed the realms of the Lonely Mountain and Dale under Thrór and Girion, respectively,[2] and was finally slain by Bard the Bowman in TA 2941.[3]

Appearances in adaptionsEdit

The Withered Heath appears as a location in the The Lord of the Rings: The Battle for Middle-Earth II video game. In Level Six of the Evil Campaign, the forces of Mordor from Dol Guldur march to the Withered Heath, led by the Mouth of Sauron, in hopes of gaining the allegiance of the dragons' leader, Drogoth the Dragon Lord. By killing the Dwarven forces and freeing the imprisoned offspring, Drogoth agrees to fight for Sauron with the promise of a Ring of Power, stolen many years ago from the Dwarves. The Withered Heath is also a playable skirmish battlefield.
