Brithombar was the name for the northern Haven of the Falas (the southern was Eglarest) at the mouth of the River Brithon in the western Beleriand.[1]


Brithombar was founded by the Falathrim under Círdan during the Years of the Trees and was haven of peace until it was besieged by the forces of Morgoth during the First Battle of Beleriand. Relieved after the return of the Noldor, the city was rebuilt and strengthened by Finrod in FA 65. However, after Morgoth gained the upper hand in the War of the Jewels, it was destroyed along with Eglarest in FA 473 following the Nirnaeth Arnoediad.[2][3][4][5]


Brithombar was a Sindarin word for 'Brithon-dwelling'.[6]
