Radhrim (Raðrim) was a forested region in eastern Doriath, located between the rivers Aros and Celon.[1][2] Although what appears to be the same region is also called Arthórien,[1] it is unknown if these two regions were the same (or if one was situated within the other).

[edit] Etymology

In the Etymologies, the Doriathrin name Radhrim is glossed as "East-march".[2]
