Main article: Two Lamps

Illuin was one of the Two Lamps of the Valar, set up by Aulë in ancient days to bring light to the world. It was destroyed by Melkor, and where it fell it created the inland Sea of Helcar. It was set up in the northern part of Middle-earth while the other Lamp, Ormal was set up in the south.
