365 Days of Middle-earth ~ Day 297: Annúminas

Annúminas as depicted in Turbine's Lord of the Rings Online

Annúminas (S. ‘Tower-of-the-Sunset’), located on the banks of Lake Evendim, was the first and only capital of Arnor, built by Elendil after the fall of Númenor. It fell to ruin between TA 250 and 861 after the Heirs of Elendil relocated to Fornost Erain and Arnor fell into decline; but at the beginning of the Fourth Age, it was rebuilt by King Elessar and became the northern capital of the Reunited Kingdom.
