Minas Tirith Details

Originally called Minas Anor was a great city stepped against the feet of the Ered Nimrais. Together with Osgiliath, the Citadel of the Stars, and Minas Ithil, the Tower of the Moon, the City of the Sun formed the core of Gondor - the mightiest realm in Middle-earth.

Minas Anor in T.A. 1640

  • Type :Citadel / Fortified City .
  • Inhabitants :95% Gondorian ,5% Other .
  • Population :45,000 (About 20.000 in later Times).
  • Origin :Founded by Anarion in S.A.3320 ,rebuilt by Ostoher in T.A.420.
  • Purpose :Capital and royal residence of Gondor ; location of a Palantir;the burial place of Gondor' s Kings ;a center of commerce and manufacturing;a hub of trade between southern Gondor ,Rhovanion , the South ,and the North ;a trainingcenter for Gondor's army .
  • Symbol :The White Tree surmounted by the Sun .

Minas Anor is situated on a great spur of rock at the eastern tip of the White Mountains.Great white walls define seven concentric levels of habitation ,each higher in altitude and status than the one beneath it .The city provides a formidable defense,and within the walls,a thriving cosmopolitan life has grown .King Tarondor moved his throne here after the Plague wiped out half of the population of Osgiliath .Traders and craftsmen from as far away as Rhovanion and Umbar head for the City of the Sun to do business with their fellows and to gather news from far away. The citizens of Mins Tirith are known throughout Gondor as apractical bunch ,and their industry has earned for them a role as the strongest bastion of the Free Peoples against the Shadow .Sadly,though ,not all can share in the city' s prosperity.The Plague forced a large portion of the rural population to seek sanctuary at the larger urban centers,such as Minas Anor.When the disease departed, the refugees remained encamped around the city walls, since many of their former towns no longer exist.Despite a large number of vacant dwellings,the citydwellers do nor want to open their gates indiscriminately .They fear the effect an influx of cheap labor would have on their prosperity.
