In memory of the Sunken City

Annúminas is the major city of the Evendim region.
It was the original capital of the Kingdom of Arnor in the north of Eriador, founded during the year 3320 of the Second Age by Elendil. It was the chief city of the Kings of Arnor for several centuries, and home to one of the three palantíri of the North-Kingdom and the Sceptre of Annúminas, the heirloom and symbol of kingship in the northern realm. The city survived for nearly a thousand years, in the early days of Arnor, it was one of the most marvellous sights of Middle-earth. Tyl Annûn is an island near the docks of Annuminas, from where the High Kings of Arnor used to rule.2980Soon after its founding, though, the numbers of the Numenoreans began to dwindle and around the year 861 of the Third Age with the split of Arnor the population of Annúminas started to decline, until the whole city became deserted, and the Kings moved to Fornost to the east. The only things that remained after were the Sceptre and the palantír

Her garbs and her horse’s tack are fashioned in a mix of gondorian and elvish style, dyed in muted colors which reflect the atmosphere around the city’s ruins.
