Revision as of 14:59, 31 August 2010 by KingAragorn (Talk | contribs)

Calacirian is a region of Eldamar near the entrance to the ravine of Calacirya. The name appears in Bilbo's song of Eärendil in Rivendell:

and seven lights before him sent,
as through the Calacirian
to hidden land forlorn he went.

The name Calacirian is a simplified form of Kalakiryandë, derived from Kalakirya.
