West (disambiguation)

Revision as of 18:00, 26 June 2012 by Ederchil (Talk | contribs)

West is a relative term in Arda, usually associated with the sunset. It was known in Sindarin as annûn or dûn, in Quenya as andúnë or númen, and in Adûnaic as adûn. West may refer to:



  • Beleriand, the most western land east of Belegaer. Elves who dwelt here were occasionally known as Dúnedhil, West-elves, to distinguish them from the Avari.
  • After the drowning of both Beleriand and Númenor, "the West" generally referred to the north-western portions of Middle-earth, or at least those who opposed Sauron.
