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.

Fairly decent app Including an interactive map would make this a definite 5star

Who is this for? With no links to other topics, this app assumes a good knowledge of Middle Earth's history so it's no good for anyone new. Similarly, entries are far too scanty for people looking to deepen their knowledge. I was also hoping for an interactive map. A far better introduction to the complex history of Middle Earth would be the book 'The Guide to Middle Earth' by Iain Lowson, Peter McKenzie and Keith Marshall (ISBN: 1-903111-23-4)

Need maps Useful. My first time going through the Simarillian, and this helps. If it had some maps, it would be really useful. My book just includes a map of Beleriand, but it takes A LOT about A LOT of places put outside of that area.
