Sting Where does Cardolan lie?

I have been wondering for a while... I have already checked where Carn Dûm is, and Angmar (hint: Barrow-Wight´s title), as I wanted to see exactly where everything is. And I can´t seem to find Cardolan, where is it? My map doesn´t show.... [img]smilies/frown.gif[/img]

I think Cardolan might have been in Beleriand. I'll look and try and find out.

I don't know what Carn Dûm or Cardolan is. Could someone explain to me or show me some links to which I may find more information?

Well Cardolan isn't in Beleriand [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img]

Quote:
The name given to the central and southern regions of Arnor; a separate kingdom after the death of Eärendur, whose rulers were descendants of one of his younger sons.
This is according to theEncylopedia Of Arda

As for Carn Dum:

Quote:
Peak in the far north of the Misty Mountains, the site of the ancient capital of the Witch-king of Angmar.

In 861 of the Third Age, the realm of Arnor(the northern kngdom of the Dùnedain which was adjacent to Gondor and northwest of it)was divided into three separate states: Arthedain, Rhudaur, and Cardolan (Land of Red Hills). Cardolan was the southern most of these states and the one that bordered Gondor.

The Watch Tower of Amon Sûl lay on the border between Cardolan and Rhudaur. Rhudauer fell under the influence of the Angmar and warred with Cardolan. In the final invasion of the Shadow's forces into Cardolan, the watchtower was burned, and the people of Cardolan were forced to take refuge in Tyrn Gorthad(the Barrow Downs) and the Old Forest.

If you'ld like to see maps concerning this, I'd like to refer you to The Atlas of Middle-earth by Karen Wynn Fonstad, pg. 51-58.
