|The Siege of Taur Ungol|
|Conflict||War against Taur Ungol|
|Place||Taur Ungol, Eryn Lasgalen|
|Result||Elves of Eryn Lasgalen victorius|
The Siege of Taur Ungol was the last battle against the evil fortress, where the elves laid siege to the mountain citadel.
Thranduil, taking his remaining forces from his woodland realm, began to march to Taur Ungol. Along the way, he enlisted the aid of the Huorns, sentient tree creatures whom dwelled in the forest.
The elves laid siege to the fortress in late 20 FA. The Huorns, enticed by Thranduil, tore down the ancient walls of Taur Ungol, and then the remaining elves charged the various breaches. The orcs and creatures of the citadel fought back desperatley, but they were quickly defeated. A few pockets of resistance remained, in the narrow bottlenecks of the fortress' corridors and stairways, but were soon defeated, and the battle was won. Thranduil, with ancient magics, destroyed the fould fortress, and buried it under a new forest, populated by the Huorns whom had fought in the battle.
