Today in Middle-earth: March 15

The Pyre of Denethor by Anke Eissmann
On this day in the year 3019 of the Third Age:
  • In the early hours the Witch-king breaks the Gates of the City 
  • The horns of the Rohirrim are heard at cockcrow 
  • Denethor burns himself on a pyre 
  • Battle of the Pelennor 
  • Aragorn raises the standard of Arwen 
  • Théoden is slain 
  • Frodo and Samwise escape and begin their journey north along the Morgai 
  • Battle under the trees in Mirkwood; Thranduil repels the forces of Dol Guldur 
  • Second assault on Lórien
