Green Hills

Pinnath Gelin in western Gondor

A range of hills between the White Mountains and the shoreland region of the Anfalas, on the western marches of Gondor. They lay far to the west of Minas Tirith, but in the War of the Ring the lord of the Green Hills, a certain Hirluin, marched a company of his men four hundred miles and more to aid in the defence of the City of Gondor.


Notes

1

The Green Hills lay in a poor and remote province of Gondor, far from the centres of power hundreds of miles away to the east. As such, the Dúnedain themselves may not have had a significant presence here (or indeed any presence at all) but as part of Gondor these hills formally fell under their dominion.
