Dagorlad was the dusty plain that lay to the northwest of Mordor, immediately below the Black Gate of the Morannon.[1] This was the site of several important battles in Gondor's history, most notably the defeat of Sauron's forces in the famous Battle of Dagorlad in S.A. 3434,[2] King Calimehtar's victory over the Easterlings in T.A. 1899,[3] and the Battle of the Morannon on 25 March, T.A. 3019.[4]
