Lamedon was a region and fiefdom in southern Gondor.

Lamedon was a series of valleys lying south of the White Mountains. Its chief settlement was the town of Calembel, where Aragorn and the Army of the Dead camped during their journey to Pelargir during the War of the Ring.

The river Ciril flowed south through Lamedon.

Description

The climate hovered near the moderate and the extreme with mild winters and hot, dry summers and the terrain consisted of scattered woodlands.[1][2] Lamedon was one of the most densely populated regions of Gondor.

History

At the end of the Third Age, its lord was Angbor, who sent only a few scattered woodsmen to reinforce Minas Tirith, as he and his men tried to defend the southern city of Linhir at the crossing of the river Gilrain against Southrons from Umbar and Harad.
