The Aros River was a river that ran through Beleriand in Middle-earth during the First Age.

The Aros River was a tributary of the river Sirion. It rose in and flowed from the northern lands around Himring. It then met the Siron at Aelin-uial. The Aros formed the eastern and southern borders of the Kingdom of Doriath and joined the Sirion at the Kingdom's southwest corner.[1]

Real Life Edit

Aros is also the original name of Aarhus, the second largest city in Denmark.
