Harlond was the port and docks of the city of Minas Tirith, used by river traffic from the southern regions of Gondor. It lay 3-4 miles[1] to the south of the city, where its fortifications ran alongside the great outlying wall of the Rammas Echor.[2]

On 15 March T.A. 3019[3] Aragorn and his followers in the fleet from the south landed at Harlond and swept north into the Battle of the Pelennor Fields.[4]

[edit] Etymology

The Sindarin[5] name Harlond means means "Southhaven".[6]

[edit] Portrayal in adaptations

2015: The Lord of the Rings Online:

Harlond was considered part of Lossarnach, in the Eastern Gondor region. In the days before the Battle of the Pelennor Fields, it was seized and blockaded by Morgul-orcs.
