Nan-tathren

Revision as of 18:27, 8 August 2010 by Mith (Talk | contribs)

Nan-tathren, the "Land of Willows", was the region where the River Narog met the great River Sirion, a little to the north of the Mouths of the Sirion. Famed for its willows and its flowered meadows, those who had visited this land reported its extraordinary beauty. It played little part in history, except that the refugees from Gondolin rested here for a while on their long journey south from their city's ruin. It was here also that Tuor heard the call of Ulmo.
