Nargothrond


See: Penguin3D Land Ownership

Construction


Nargothrond was constructed in the First Age by Finrod Felagund as a fortress against Morgoth. It was built deep into the banks of the Narog river. Finrod was assisted in the underground construction of this city by the dwarves. There were many majestic caves, tunnels, and halls. It was certainly a most beautiful place to behold. Nargothrond would remain as a secure place hidden from the forces of Morgoth for hundreds of years.

Fall of Nargothrond



Bad Strategy

Nargothrod would eventually fall when it's king, Orodreth, under the counseling of Turin Turambar, decided to make open war with Morgoth rather than fighting in secret. Orodreth had a great bridge built across the Narog river directly to the doors of Nargothrond so that his armies could pass over the river easily but this also revealed the exact location of the hidden city which Morgoth had never before been able to find.

Destruction

Since Morgoth knew where Nargothrond laid, he sent out a force of Orcs as well as one dragon, Glaurung, to attack the city. The Nargothrond armies were utterly defeated and the citizens of the city were killed for the most part. Glaurung took up residence in the city and kept his hoard of treasure there.

Glaurung would reside there until he was slayed by Turin Turambar. Despite the dragon being slayed, the city of Nargothrond would remain uninhabited. It would later be flooded in the flood of Beleriand.

Reconstruction



Rediscovery

After the land of Beleriand was drained by the will of Nameless One, the ancient city of Nargothrond would be rediscovered by Annalle and her husband, two wood elves from Aman. Annalle decided to restore the once great kingdom and turn it into a beautiful resort. Queen Annalle would eventually become corrupted by vanadium crystals and fall into darkness.
