Tolkien fact 13 – Today in Middle-earth History, March 15th

[Originally posted on March 15th, 2015]

On March 15th in the Third Age:

“In the early hours the Witch-king breaks the Gates of the City. Denethor burns himself on a pyre. The horns of the Rohirrim are heard at cockcrow. Battle of the Pelennor. Théoden is slain. Aragorn raises the standard of Arwen. 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 Lorien.”

It was a very stressful day for some.
