Firienholt

Revision as of 12:03, 18 February 2008 by Tik (Talk | contribs)

Firienholt was a wood that stood on the borders of Rohan and Gondor.

From beneath its trees flowed the Mering Stream, which marked the precise border between the Eastfold, and the Gondorian land of Anórien. To the south of the wood, the White Mountains rose up, and in particular a prominent peak stood above the forest: the Halifirien, which for many years was the site of the Tomb of Elendil. From this high hill, the wood took its name - firien holt means 'mountain wood', though it is rather more commonly referred to simply as the 'Firien Wood'.
