"They came at unawares in the middle of winter, and fought with Dior in the Thousand Caves; and so befell the second slaying of Elf by Elf. There fell Celegorm by Dior's hand, and there fell Curufin, and dark Caranthir; but Dior was slain also, and Nimloth his wife, and the cruel servants of Celegorm seized his young sons and left them to starve in the forest. Of this Maedhros indeed repented, and sought long for them in the woods of Doriath; but his search was unavailing, and of the fate of Elured and Elurin no tale tells."

J. R. R. Tolkien, The Silmarillion: The Ruin of Doriath

Minas Ithil - the tower of rising moon - the counterpart of Minas Anor (later Minas Tirith), the seat of king Isildur and the most beautiful town in Gondor, located in the deep valley in the Mountains of Shadow, a citadel of the Dúnedain on the very border of Mordor...
...until it was besieged and conquered by the ringwraiths and turned into the dreadful city called Minas Morgul.
