Ost-in-Edhil

The city of the Elves of Eregion

The chief city of Eregion, the great Elvish nation of the mid-Second Age. It was here that the House of the Mírdain stood, and here too that the Rings of Power were forged by Celebrimbor and the Mírdain. The city stood for nearly a thousand years, but was ravaged by Sauron during his invasion of Eriador.
