Notes

1

Most of the fortifications on the Weather Hills dated from the time of Argeleb I (III 1349 - III 1356) and only stood for a few decades before they were thrown down by the forces of Angmar. The Tower of Amon Sûl on Weathertop, though, was much older, and had held one of the palantíri of the North-kingdom since the days of Arnor's foundation.
