Drûn was a region in Dorthonion, located north of Tarn Aeluin and west of Ladros.[1] The region was marked on the Second 'Silmarillion' Map, on which the map in the published Silmarillion was based. Apart from the mention of a "fire in Drûn" within The Lay of Leithian,[2] nothing else is known about the region.
