In the year 1300 of the Third Age, even as the hobbits migrated across the Misty Mountains to settle in Eriador, so there came to the northern lands another, darker, traveller. Murazor, the Witch-king, first among the Nazgul, founded Angmar in the northern Misty Mountains, and from there gathered to him creatures of darkness with which to over-run and destroy the already fragmented Dunedain nations of Arthedain, Rhudaur and Cardolan, remnants of the once-great kingdom of Arnor.
In 1409 the Witch-king made his move, his armies pouring down from the mountains. The Hill Men of Rhudaur, overawed by the power of the Witch-king, pledged allegiance to him, and those few Dunedain in Rhudaur who remained loyal to the cause of Arnor fled to Arthedain. Cardolan, on whom the attack was led by the Witch-king himself, was simply overwhelmed. And only the aid of the Elves of Lindon and Rivendell enabled Arthedain to finally turn the Black Tide.
With the Witch-king's armies forced to retreat back into Rhudaur and the northern mountains, the men of Arthedain thought themselves safe. But, sensing the fragility of the Arthedain nation, Murazor worked fast to restore his armies, newly bolstered by the Hill-men of Rhudaur so that now, only two score years later, he prepares once more to drive the last of the line of Dunedain from Arnor, and claim Eriador for his dark lord.
