About this entry:
Fiefs and regions of Gondor
A region of Gondor on the southern slopes of the White Mountains. The River Ciril ran through it to meet the Ringló, and Calembel was its chief town.
Though the meaning of this ancient name is unclear, we do have an etymological note that links its ending -on to the Sindarin word for 'region', and indicating that original form may have been Lamedond. The element lamed- remains obscure.
Angbor, Calembel, Lord of Lamedon, Morthond Vale, Ringló Vale, River Ciril, River Ringló, Tarlangs Neck
