Southlands

The lands of Gondor

"For this is not the first halfling that I have seen walking out of northern legends into the Southlands."
Words of Faramir
from The Return of the King V 4
The Siege of Gondor

A term used to refer to the lands at the latitude of Gondor, the old South-kingdom of the Dúnedain, as opposed to the Northlands where Arnor stood in ancient times. 'South' here is a relative term: the Southlands were by no means the most southerly of lands in Middle-earth. Beyond them stretched the uncharted deserts and jungles of the Harad.
