Haudh-en-Elleth was the grave of Finduilas of Nargothrond that stood near the Crossings of Teiglin on the western borders of the Forest of Brethil. Túrin would not allow Orcs to draw near to the mound, so they soon feared and avoided the place. On one of his forays to battle Orcs near the Crossings, Túrin discovered Niënor his sister (whom he did not know) upon the mound, naked and cowering from a storm. Later Túrin met Mablung at the mound and learned that Niënor was indeed his sister.
Haudh-en-Elleth is a Sindarin name glossed as "Mound of the Elf-maid" or "mound (grave) of the Noldorin maid", from haudh ("funeral mound") + en ("of the") + Elleth ("Elf-maid").:141 An early form was Haudh-en-Ellas.:97
