Forum:Borders of Rohan, Rovanion and Rhûn
All other kingdoms (eg. Mordor, Gondor, Lindon, etc.) in the West of Middle-earth have obvious geographical borders (eg. Mountains). In the region of Rohan, Rhovanion and Rhûn, however, there are no mountain ranges to seperate them, only rivers and forest. So, my question, where exactly do their borders lie? -- Explorer of Arda 09:53, 30 March 2010 (UTC)
Edit: Drat. I misspellt "Rhovanion" in the title. How can I fox that?
- As for fixing: you could press "Move", but it's not important. We know what you mean.
- Rohan has rivers as borders - the Isen (and later the Adorn) in the West, Anduin, Entwash and the Mering stream in the East. Fangorn marked the northern border.
- Rhûn and Rhovanion don't have clear borders. -- Ederchil (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 10:37, 30 March 2010 (UTC)
- Ah, I see. I thought maby Rhûn and Rhovanion were partly seperated by the River Running, with Rhûn to its east and Rhovanion to its west or something like that.
- Quick off topic question. Do you happend to know how the East Sea was formed? -- Explorer of Arda 11:55, 30 March 2010 (UTC)
Hyemenor (Southland - aka Darkland) is the southern continent of Arda, directly bellow Middle-earth. The two continents are seperated by the East Sea. It's the sea, not the continets, that lies to the east, though it is technically in the centre of Arda. -- Explorer of Arda 11:42, 31 March 2010 (UTC)
- ow okay, the east sea is fanon, isnt it? --Amroth 14:24, 31 March 2010 (UTC)<math>Insert formula here</math>
- Not at all!! The East Sea is the sea that devides Middle-Earth form the Dark Land (aka Southland or Hyarmenor). You can see both the Dark Land and the East Sea on the map (of the First Age - by Tolkien himself) below:
- Here's the link to a great map of Arda's northern hemisphere, also during the First Age: http://www.theonering.com/images/medialibrary/first_age_of_arda.gif You can also see the East Sea there.
- That map at the link, isn't it published in the Atlas of Middle-Earth.
