Duilwen was one of the seven rivers of Ossiriand in Beleriand during the First Age.

The Duilwen began from the Blue Mountains and was one of the six tributaries of the great river Gelion. It lay between the two other rivers of Ossiriand: Brilthor and Adurant. According to Karen Wynn Fonstad's The Atlas of Middle-earth, it was nearly one-hundred and fifty miles in length.[1]


Duilwen meant 'Fresh river' in Sindarin.[2]
