Belfalas was a coastal region located in Southern Gondor.
HistoryBelfalas was also home to an old Elf-haven called Edhellond which was first founded before the end of the First Age by Elven remnants of Doriath who did not wish to remain in Lindon due to their dislike of the Noldor still held by these Teleri Elves.
Belfalas formed part of Dor-en-Ernil. The Prince in question was the Lord of Dol Amroth, who lived at the city bearing his name. At the start of the second millennium of the Third Age, a certain Imrazôr the Númenórean lived in and ruled over the Belfalas. He married Mithrellas, a Silvan Elf of Lórien, and their son Galador became the first Prince of Dol Amroth.
Its chief city was the Prince's residence of Dol Amroth. South of the Belfalas lay a great Bay, which was named after it the Bay of Belfalas. The climate hovered near the moderate and the extreme with mild winters and hot, dry summers and the terrain consisted of scattered woodlands.
War of the Ring
During the War of the Ring, the Belfalas was raided by the Corsairs of Umbar, and therefore did not send any men to help defend Minas Tirith, until Aragorn liberated the coast with the Grey Company, freeing Gondor's southern armies to follow him north to relieve Minas Tirith.
