Belmarie

Revision as of 12:53, 30 January 2012 by Morgan (Talk | contribs)

Belmarie was the name of a country in the poem Errantry by Bilbo Baggins.[1] The name was not actually Elvish but an invention in the Elvish style.[2]

It is unknown if Belmarie referred to an actual river in Middle-earth, or if it was just an invention by the poet.
