Anfalas

Anfalas was the Elvish name for a coastal region of Gondor.

The Anfalas, or Long Shore, also known as Langstrand in Westron (the Common Tongue), lay between the rivers Lefnui and Morthond, south of the Green Hills of Pinnath Gelin.

Description

The climate of the Anfalas featured mild winters and hot, dry summers.[1] The terrain consisted of scattered woodlands[2] on undulating lowlands.[3] It was not densely populated, as it was far from central Gondor and there were no known cities.

History

During the War of the Ring, the people of the Anfalas were led by Lord Golasgil, who brought with him a well-equipped household retinue, but mostly scantily equipped hunters or fishermen, to the defence of Minas Tirith. Anfalas was harassed at the coasts by the Corsairs of Umbar while Golasgil was away.
