The area of Forodwaith that lay north of Eriador was known as Forochel, together with the great ice-bay and cape, which carried the same name. This area roughly corresponded with the area where the Blue Mountains and the Iron Mountains once met.[1]

History Edit

It is speculated in The Atlas of Middle-earth that the ancient stronghold of Morgoth, Utumno, was once located in Forochel, although this is not necessarily canonical. Forochel was inhabited by a tribe of brown skinned people called the Lossoth, or Snowmen. The chief of these tribes sheltered the Arthedain king Arvedui for a time and was given the Ring of Barahir as a reward.[2]

Etymology Edit

Forochel is a Sindarin word that meant 'North- ?'.[3]
