The Ethir

The land at the Mouths of Anduin

The Gondorian land encompassing the wide delta where the waters of the River Anduin flowed out into the Great Sea, about two hundred miles southwest of Minas Tirith. The name comes from the Elvish word for 'outflow', referring to the great river-mouth (which was known in full as Ethir Anduin). The people of this region were noted for their seamanship and weather-wisdom.
