The Lord of the Rings Middle Earth Places: Osgiliath


- Appears in The Two Towers and The Return of the King
- Once the capital of Gondor

Osgiliath is on the River Anduin. It was once the capital of Gondor, but with the rise of Sauron, Osgiliath has been under greater and greater attack. It had fallen once before, but recaptured it.

In The Two Towers:
Faramir brings Frodo, Gollum and Sam there, but after Frodo's encounter with the Nazgûl, Faramir lets them go, forfeiting his own life by the laws of the land.

In The Return of the King:
Gothmog, Lieutenant of Minas Morgul, leads a successful early morning attack on the city, routing the Gondorian force holding the city. Faramir later leads a counterattack against the city that is easily repelled by the Orcs.
