Middle Earth Index

Middle Earth Index


Even as a Tolkien fanatic, it is often tough to remember all the names and places when reading his extensive works. Here is your glossary of all things Tolkien, with over 5000 entries! The perfect companion to The Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, or The Silmarillion.

This application is also a useful aid when watching the movies! In 'The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey', there are many references to things that die-hard Tolkien fans will understand, yet the casual movie-goer will not. The dwarves mention Ered Luin, Dain, and Durin. Radagast calls the spiders a "spawn of Ungoliant". Gandalf warns Radagast of the "Gundabad wargs", yet Radagast is unafraid with his "Rhosgobel rabbits". Galadriel speaks of the Witch-King of Angmar, and Rhudaur.

What is the "Desolation of Smaug" or "The Battle of the Five Armies"? How do all of these new characters, such as Thranduil, Beorn and Bard, fit in with the Middle Earth we have seen so far? These references, among others, can now be easily and conveniently understood.

Features include an intuitive categorization, search capabilities, and links for more information.

This is my first app, built purely for my own enjoyment. Even after multiple readings of The Silmarillion or Unfinished Tales, I still found it hard to remember the massive amount of information, and didn't like going online to find it, so I started designing this app. Now I have decided to share it with everyone!

Please rate, and feel free to send me constructive criticism. I am planning to continue updating the appearance, layout, and entry information.

Lacks detail and accuracy. A great idea that fails in accuracy and if used by someone who has never read Tolkiens works would mislead you greatly. Examples of lack of detail would be discussing Finrod Felagund without mentioning his importance to men upon their arrival or discussing the word "magnificent" without mentioning Smaug. Great idea for an app but falls very short of what it could or should be.

Great App For a free app of all things Tolkien, this is a terrific glossary of characters, locations, creatures, etc. from Middle-Earth. Works perfectly on my Galaxy Note 3.

Decent Enough You should add in Gilthrang though. He is the Ainur who helps Melkor break the Doors of Night and start the Dagor Dagorath in the Fourth Age, thus leading to the Second Music of the Ainur. And you forgot Lurtz but that's ok since he's not a REAL Orc. Only exists in the movies.
