Brethil was a cluster of woods between the Teiglin and the Sirion, originally part of Doriath but outside the Girdle of Melian. The main feature of the forest was the hill of Amon Obel.

After dwelling east of the river Gelion, the Men of the House of Haleth were granted Brethil by King Thingol, on the condition that they guard the Crossings of Teiglin.[2] Some Drúedain also dwelt there. The main settlement of the Haladin was Ephel Brandir on Amon Obel.

The Men of Brethil for a century protected Nargothrond and also took part in the Nirnaeth Arnoediad, were they were all slain. Their Chieftain Handir was slain by Orcs north of Brethil on F.A. 495.[3]

Túrin came here after the destruction of Nargothrond and the journey to Dor-Lómin, and rested here for a while, until rumours came again about Glaurung, the father of all dragons. At the borders of this forest Glaurung was slain by Túrin.[3]
