Linhir was a town in southern Gondor (specifically Lamedon), at the juncture of the River Gilrain and the River Serni, near to the Mouths of Anduin.

Angbor, the Lord of Lamedon, was here attacked by the Haradrim and Corsairs during the War of the Ring. After the coming of Aragorn and the Grey Company (with, of course, the Army of the Dead), terror came upon their assailants, and they fled. The Men of Lamedon fled as well; all save the stout-hearted Angbor. Eventually the Corsairs were driven back to Pelargir, where they were defeated.
