Revision as of 15:20, 18 January 2008 by Ederchil (Talk | contribs)

Emyn Arnen is a series of hills in Ithilien, south of Osgiliath.

Emyn Arnen ("the Hills of Arnen") was home to a family of Númenórean nobles, and from them came a Húrin of Emyn Arnen, who became steward to King Minardil of Gondor and later founded the line of the House of Húrin.

After the events of the War of the Ring, Faramir son of Steward Denethor II became Prince of Ithilien, and made Emyn Arnen his home. He and his descendants therefore also became known as Lords of Emyn Arnen.
