|The Tower of Orthanc|
The Tower of Orthanc was the tower in the middle of Isengard. Once a fortress of Gondor, it was now home to Saruman, the leader of the wizards, until he studied too deep into the arts of Sauron and tried to convince Gandalf to join with the dark lord. When Gandalf turned down his offer, they fought and Gandalf was imprisoned. After the battle, Saruman turned all of Isengard into a giant stronghold to create Uruk-hai. After Gwaihir rescued Gandalf from the tower, the grey wizard was able to bring news to the elves that Saruman had betrayed them. It continued to serve this evil role until (after burning down the southern edge of Fangorn) it was flooded by Treebeard and the other vengeful Ents.
