Tirharad was a Southlander village that was located within the Southlands of Middle-earth during the late Second Age. Tirharad was invented by Amazon Studios for The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power.[1]

History[edit | edit source]

The village was located in the Southlands of Middle-earth, and specifically in the Plateau of Gorgoroth. It was destroyed by the eruption of Orodruin, causing the survivors to abandon the place.[2][3]

Etymology[edit | edit source]

Tirharad is likely a Sindarin word meaning southwatch, being possibly comprised of the elements Tir ("watch") and Harad ("south").
