Tûr Haretha

The Ladybarrow of Brethil

A name for the green mound raised in the heights of the Forest of Brethil as a grave-barrow for the Lady Haleth. She was the leader who had brought her People out of the dangerous lands east of Beleriand, and led them westwards to settle in Brethil, where she remained until the end of her life. Her grave-mound is also called Haudh-en-Arwen, and its name translates as 'Ladybarrow'.
