to:

* VestigialEmpire: It spent its entire history in a state of decline. By the time Arvedui became king, Arthedain, a rump state with shrinking territory and a declining population, was the only part of the former Arnor that had any people.

Added DiffLines:

* GeoEffects: Gondor owes its continued existence to the Anduin. The river defines their current bordor, and is incredibly difficult for Mordor's armies to cross, making an outright invasion impossible until late in the story, when both crossings over the river are finally captured.

The Kingdom of Arnor was once the sister realm of Gondor, one of two Númenórean kingdoms in exile after Númenór's destruction. Located in, and encompassing most of Eriador, civil war, plague, and a ForeverWar against Angmar reduced Arnor in territory and population until it was finally destroyed when the Witch-King sacked Fornost. Descendants of the extinct kingdom now wander about the region of Eriador, acting as wardens, spies, and warriors guarding such settlements as remain in the North against "dark things". Led at this time by Aragorn (see Fellowship of the Ring above).

* CivilWar: The splitting of Arnor was done to prevent one after the death of Eärendur, leaving Amlaith of Fornost with just Arthedain. Later, the eastern state, Rhudaur, would become a vassal of Angmar, and repeatedly attack the other two Arnorian petty-kingdoms of Arthedain and Cardolan.

* FaceHeelTurn: Cardolan and Rhudaur were rebellious states formed by the younger sons of King Eärendur and brought war to Arthedain repeatedly.

!Rangers of the North

Descendants of the extinct Kingdom of Arnor wandering about acting as wardens, spies, and warriors guarding such settlements as remain in the North against "dark things". Led at this time by Aragorn (see Fellowship of the Ring above).

!Rangers !Dúnedain of the North

The Kingdom of Arnor was once the sister realm of Gondor, one of two Númenórean kingdoms in exile after Númenór's destruction. Located in, and encompassing most of Eriador, civil war, plague, and a ForeverWar against Angmar reduced Arnor in territory and population until it was finally destroyed when the Witch-King sacked Fornost. Descendants of the extinct Kingdom of Arnor wandering kingdom now wander about the region of Eriador, acting as wardens, spies, and warriors guarding such settlements as remain in the North against "dark things". Led at this time by Aragorn (see Fellowship of the Ring above).

* BadassArmy: Though they don't assemble until the War of the Ring. The army of Arnor in its prime was mighty, as well, directly challenging Sauron and taking part in the siege of Mordor.
* TheChewToy: The first two thousand years of the Third Age was basically one long period of unmitigated suffering for the people of Arnor.
* CivilWar: The splitting of Arnor was done to prevent one after the death of Eärendur, leaving Amlaith of Fornost with just Arthedain. Later, the eastern state, Rhudaur, would become a vassal of Angmar, and repeatedly attack the other two Arnorian petty-kingdoms of Arthedain and Cardolan.
* TheDeterminator: The Chieftains of the Dúnedain kept the legacy of Arnor alive for near a thousand years, in the hope that one day their kingdom would be restored. They got their wish in King Elessar.
* EarnYourHappyEnding: The Third Age for them consisted of: The untimely death of Isildur, a civil war, the fragmentation of their realm, a terrible plague, more civil war, a war against Angmar, extensive depopulation, the decline of the Dúnedain, the sacking of Fornost, the drowning of Arvedui, the loss of two of the Palantiri, one thousand years of living as nomads, the War of the Ring...and then the restoration of the king and their realm.
* FaceHeelTurn: Cardolan and Rhudaur were rebellious states formed by the younger sons of King Eärendur and brought war to Arthedain repeatedly.



* HeelFaceTurn: Cardolan eventually reconciled with Arthedain and recognized their king as being king of all Arnor, owing to repeated attacks by Rhudaur and Angmar, and the failing of Isildur's line in Cardolan.



* LookUponMyWorksYeMightyAndDespair: Ruined cities, like Annuminas, Fornost Erain, Tyrn Gorthad, Eryn Vorn, and Tharbad, all stand as a testament to the once-mighty Kingdom.



* ShiningCity: Once upon a time, Annuminas and Fornost were the equals of Minas Tirth and Osgiliath.



* TheRemnant: The Rangers and some ruins are all that remain of the lost northern kingdom of Arnor. The only bits of Arnor that are really inhabited are the Shire and Bree, so that's what they protect.

* BreakTheHaughty: The combination of several plagues, a civil war, and the steady encroachment of Sauron with all the suffering and misery that entails have brought Gondor a lot of hardship, but brought them a little humility in the process.

* VestigialEmpire: Their territory was formerly much larger, and at one time they even garrisoned Mordor itself in order to keep the servants of Sauron from occupying it after his defeat at the end of the Second Age. Osgilliath, their once-capital, is now a giant ruin, and its western sub-city is all that they still control.
* YouShallNotPass: Stands for thousands of years between Mordor and the other Free Peoples. Boromir emphasizes Gondor's importance in this role at the Council of Elrond.

unable to mount an attack on Anorien and the area around Minas Tirith until the very end because of the actions of the Rangers of Ithilien and the garrison at Cair Andros.

Elrond, and he's right: the crossings at Cair Andros and Osgiliath are the only ways across the river for many miles and both are held by Gondor.

* TakenForGranite: Sunlight permanently turns them into stone, although the Olog-hai, a variant bred by Sauron, are immune to this.
* ToServeMan: Trolls have absolutely no problem with killing and eating other intelligent beings.

* CuteCrittersActChildlike: Downplayed. They're relatively innocent, good-humored, and uncomplicated, but more "simple rural folk" than childish as such.
