Men Erain

Men Erain -

The Lord of the Rings Online Lorebook has been updated with a look at Men Erain, where the Kings of Arnor rest.

After the fashion of ancient Númenor, the Men of Arnor revered their dead almost more than they did the living. Great tombs were erected for their kings in a place called Men Erain. Of the ten kings of Arnor, only seven were interred at Men Erain, for Valandil son of Isildur was buried beneath Annúminas, Elendil at Halifirien far to the south – though a tomb was erected for him in memorial at Men Erain – and Isildur, his son, was never recovered from Anduin.

Those who lie at rest at Men Erain are the heirs of Isildur in the line of Valandil: Eldacar, Arantar, Tarcil, Tarondor, Valandur, Elendur, and Eärendur, whose son Amlaith removed to Fornost as the first king of Arthedain. For many long years these tombs remained undisturbed, but after the fall of the North-kingdom to the Witch-king of Angmar, tomb-robbers and thieves came to Evendim. It is unknown if any of the treasures buried with the kings still remain, but the Rangers of the North have maintained their vigil over the tombs.
