The Eye The Towers

Well, tell what tower was considered the "Citadel of the Stars" and where it is located. Also tell me which tower is "The Tower of the Sun" and what it's previous name is. [img]smilies/evil.gif[/img] Ha HA HA! Try your luck!

Sorry I took so long, but the first person who responded was correct, so was everybody else. And
I thought that someone would have gotten it later! Well, Osgilliath is located about 50 miles or so from Minas Tirith, where Boromir held off a group of orcs shortly before he joined the fellowship. That was for some good answers! So go ahead!

Mundburg by the people of Rohan for whatever reason...I don't know Rohirric (yet).
And Minas Anor was its original name, partly because it was the city of Anorien, and partly because it was the Western city, and the sun (anor) sets in the west.

Sorry
Mundburg's the name for Minas Tirith, but that's not what I meant.

What about it's White Tower ?

I can't find the right place to look, but I'm remembering "wind"...Tower of Wind. Is that right?

edit: Oh, I found it, and "Windy Hill" was pretty close to what I said...


What is Isengard's other name? (I'm not looking for Orthanc)

Windy was pretty close indeed. It is 'Hill of the Wind' as far as I know, but I'll give that to you.

Go for it!

eeemm... I'm sorry, but you did not name them both. APart from the misspelling (which I don't regard as a mistake), it was not Dol Guldur I was looking for. Dol Guldur is the name of the Tower, but not of the hill.

Try again!

The Istari are the Wizards, gramil

It is never named as anything but "Dol Guldor", and according to the translation thingy in the back of the Sil, "Dol Guldor" means "Hill of Sorcery"

What misspelling?

The Dol GuldOr is Dol GuldUr... that's themisspelling. And there is another name: Amon Lanc that hill is named.

There seems to be some misunderstanding or so. If that is my fault, I apologize. Please do ask the next question, Childlike Empress. Let us go on!

Where'd you get that name, Lathspell? I couldn't find it.

Easy one: What are the names of the two hills flanking the Falls of Rauros, in both Westron and Sindarin?
