The '''Angle of Lórien''' was the main region of [[Lothlórien|Lórien]], lying between the arms of the River [[Silverlode]] and the [[Great River]] (or, in [[Elvish]], [[Celebrant]] and [[Anduin]]). The Angle was known to its inhabitants as [[Egladil]], and is not to be confused with the narrow land between the Rivers [[Hoarwell]] and [[Loudwater]], far to the west, which was also known as 'The Angle'.

The maps that accompany [[The Lord of the Rings]] show [[Lothlórien|Lórien]] as an approximate rectangle, with the course of [[Celebrant]] more or less perpendicular to that of [[Anduin]], and so it may seem odd to refer to an 'Angle' between the two rivers. However, there are various references in the text to the sharpness of the angle where the rivers met, and it seems that the land of [[Lothlórien|Lórien]] may have been rather longer and narrower than is shown in the familiar maps.
