Barad-dur (Dark Tower)

Post  Yrobryn on Tue Jun 09, 2009 2:25 pm

Barad-dûr was built by Sauron, the Dark Lord of Mordor, with the power of the One Ring, during the Second Age. The building took six hundred years to complete; it was the greatest fortress ever built since the Fall of Angband, and much of Sauron's personal power went into it.
Barad-dûr was besieged for seven years by the Last Alliance of Elves and Men and was levelled after Sauron's defeat at the end of the Second Age, but because it was created using the power of the One Ring, its foundations could not be destroyed completely unless the Ring itself was destroyed. Isildur cut the Ring from Sauron's hand but refused to destroy it, so the Tower was quickly re-built when Sauron returned to Mordor thousands of years later, in T.A. 2951.
As the war for Middle-earth begun, The Dark Tower rose once more after destoyed in the war of the ring.
