Eldacar raises an army to challenge Castamir in the Kin-strife
Event Type: Military/Strategic
Age: 3rd Age - The Kings
An event in the Kin-strife in Gondor; see that entry for an overview:
Many gathered to him [in Rhovanion], both of the Northmen in the service of Gondor, and of the Dúnedain of the northern parts of the realm. For many of the latter had learned to esteem him, and many more came to hate his usurper....
Thus [Castamir] had been king only ten years, when Eldacar, seeing his time, came with a great army out of the north, and folk flocked to him from Calenardhon and Anórien and Ithilien.
