Edhellond was an ancient harbour in southern Gondor.

Edhellond was located at the mouth of the rivers Ringló and Blackroot, where they flow into Cobas Haven just over twenty-five miles northeast of Dol Amroth, according to The Atlas of Middle-earth.[1]

The location of Edhellond on a map of Middle-earth.

Edhellond was founded by Sindar before the end of the First Age, who had come there as refugees from Beleriand during Morgoth's ascendancy. At first, the population of the haven was quite small since the refugees had come in just three small ships, but over time their numbers had been increased by Nandor who came down the Anduin.[3] From Edhellond Elves began sailing westward from the time of the fall of Eregion (in SA 1697 [4]).[5] Amroth, Prince of Lórien, was lost at sea near Edhellond in TA 1981 when he attempted to swim to shore to seek his beloved Nimrodel. The ship from which he jumped overboard was the last ship of Elves to leave from Edhellond, which was deserted from then on [6], although remembered in the traditions of Men in Gondor.[5]


Edhellond was a Sindarin word for Elf Harbour' from edhel ("elf") and lond ("haven, harbour").[7]

It pronounced "ETH-e-lond", with the th sound in "there".
