Drûn

From Tolkien Gateway

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,[1] on which the map of Beleriand in the published Silmarillion was based upon.[2]

Apart from the mention of a "fire in Drûn" in the revised Lay of Leithian,[3] nothing else is known about the region.
