Lost Kingdom of Orulath

One of seven new barbaric kingdoms formed after the destruction of the kingdom of Adar at the end of the Fourth Age. The capitol of Orulath was the fortress of Gol-Gathad, and its leaders had a dreadful reputation for cruelty and terror. The territory of Orulath was in what is today far southwest Morgoth, in the region of the Kûrloth Marshes and the rocky region to the direct north and east of them. The kingdom was eventually absorbed into the larger realm of Morgoth, after the rise of Sorimmar. The last King of Orulath, whose true name is forgotten, became one of the seven Zûl, under his new master, Sorimmar. Orulath’s coat of arms consisted of a yellow lightning bolt on a dark blue field.
