Iorbad was one of the villages of Men within the Southlands that was located somewhere between the Watchtower of Ostirith and Orodruin. The village of Iorbad was invented for The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power by Amazon Studios.

In the late Second Age, the inhabitants of Iorbad were the last to flee to the Watchtower of Ostirith in order to be protected from the Orcs that were lead by Adar. The village was presumably destroyed during the eruption of Orodruin if it was not already destroyed by Orcs.

Etymology[edit]

Iorbad is clearly meant to be Sindarin, a combination of iaur ("old") + bâd ("pathway").
