Original Esgaroth (About TA 1640)


New-Esgaroth in the early Fourth Age

  • Type: Market Town 
  • Inhabitants: 90% Northman, 10% Mixed Mannish 
  • Population: 910 (mid-third Age)-5.000 (late third Age)
  • Origin: Founded as independent town on the site of a seasonal trading station, c. TA 1240 
  • Purpose: A market for most goods passing through northern Rhovanion; a regional focal point for rural Northmen in the region 

Esgaroth (N."Reed-Settlement") was built upon great platforms above the Annen and is connected to land by a single bridge. The Men of Lake-town elected a Master every other year, but trade was the true ruler of Esgaroth. Most of the trade routes in the region passed through Esgaroth, and the Northmen who lived there were surprisingly cosmopolitan.
