Nan Dungortheb

Revision as of 07:04, 16 July 2006 by Ebakunin (Talk | contribs)

Nan Dungortheb was the dreadful valley in northern Beleriand that ran west to east between the haunted mountains of the Ered Gorgoroth and the enchanted northern marches of Doriath.

Nan Dungortheb means "Valley of Horrible West" in Sindarin (from nan = "valley", dûn = "west", and gortheb = "horrible").
