Arthórien

A region of eastern Doriath

Map of Arthórien

The easternmost part of the forests of Doriath, a narrow land divided from the larger part of the Forest of Region by the River Aros, and separated from the plainlands to the east by the Celon. At the time of the First Battle of the Wars of Beleriand, many survivors of the Nandor fled the fighting to seek refuge in Doriath, and it was in Arthórien that most of them settled.
