Mounds of Mundburg

Type: Other Constructions

Region: Gondor

Location: The grassy burial mounds near Minas Tirith for the Rohirrim and Dúnedain who died in the Battle of the Pelennor.


Herefara and Herubrand, Horn and Fastred,
fought and fell there in a far country:
in the Mounds of Mundburg 1 under mould they lie
with their league-fellows, lords of Gondor....

Death in the morning and at day's ending
lords took and lowly. Long now they sleep
under grass in Gondor by the Great River.

From the Song of the Mounds of Mundburg
The Return of the King, LoTR Book 5, Ch 6, The Battle of the Pelennor Fields
