Nurn

Revision as of 16:04, 9 March 2008 by Nazg (Talk | contribs)

Nurn (unknown origin) was the name given to the southern regions of Mordor, more fertile than Gorgoroth in the north, in which the great inland sea of Núrnen lay. The people who inhabited Nurn were Men, and there also may have been prisoners of war there as well. These people were enslaved by Sauron, working the soil around the sea of Nurn to feed Sauron's armies.

After the War of the Ring, Aragorn II liberated the peoples of Nurn and giving them the land as their own.
