Something disturbs the eternal rest of the last prince of Cardolan.
- Part 33 of Imhiriel's Drabbles
A tale of the last months of the ruling house of Cardolan in T.A. 1409. This takes place in the same story setting as my previous effort Son Of Rhudaur and includes some of the same characters.

This is a bit of exploration of the history of Arnor inspired by the following passage in the Appendices:
"A great host came out of Angmar in 1409, and crossing the river entered Cardolan and surrounded Weathertop. The Dunedain were defeated and Arveleg was slain. The tower of Amon Sul was burned and razed; but the palantir was saved and carried back in retreat to Fornost, Rhudaur was occupied by evil Men subject to Angmar, and the Dunedain that remained there were slain or fled west. Cardolan was ravaged. Araphor son of Arveleg was not yet full grown, but he was valiant, and with aid from Cirdan he repelled the enemy from Fornost and the North Downs. A remnant of the faithful among the Dunedain of Cardolan also held out in Tyrn Gorthard (the Barrowdowns), or took refuge in the Forest behind.
"It is said that Angmar was for a time subdued by the Elvenfolk coming from Lindon; and from Rivendell for Elrond brought help over the Mountains out of Lorien." (pg. 359)
Some of the details have been toyed with to try to fill in the blanks between what happened.
