In J. R. R. Tolkiens legendarium, the Dúnedain (singular: Dúnadan) were a fictional race of Men descended from the Númenóreans that survived the fall of their island kingdom and came to Eriador in Middle-earth, led by Elendil and his sons, Isildur and Anárion. ... location of Arthedain in Middle-earth marked in red In the fiction of J.

Arthedain, bereft of allies, struggled on for another 500 years. The end came in 1974 T.A., when Angmar amassed its forces and launched a final assault on Arthedain. Angmar took the Arthedain capital Fornost, thereby destroying the last kingdom of the Dúnedain in the North. In the fiction of J. R. R. Tolkien, Fornost Erain (Sindarin Northern-fortress of the Kings from for(n) (north) + ost (fortress); Norbury of the Kings in Westron) was a city of Eriador in the north of Middle-earth. ...


A year later, Prince Eärnur of Gondor arrived to aid Arthedain, but he was too late. His army, along with the remaining Dúnedain, the Elves of Lindon, and elven forces set out from Rivendell led by Glorfindel utterly defeated the forces of Angmar in the Battle of Fornost, but the Witch-king was not slain. He escaped and fled to Mordor, and his kingdom of Angmar dissipated. It was after this battle that Glorfindel made the famous prophecy that the Witch-king would be killed by no man.
