Before Ungoliant, Nan Dungortheb was probably just another peaceful land of the [[Beleriand]]. The land's name was inspired by [[Ungoliant]], who resided there after escaping the [[Balrogs]] of [[Morgoth]] and [[Lammoth]]. It is also named for its proximity to the Ered Gorgoroth, where Ungoliant's spider-like children, along with their many lesser fathers from the Mountains of Terror, haunted the deep vales of the mountains and its closeness to the shadowy webs of the [[Girdle of Melian]].<ref>''[[The Silmarillion]], [[Quenta Silmarillion]],'' Chapter VIII: "[[Of the Darkening of Valinor]]"</ref>

The region was a perilous land of fear to travel through, as the waters were polluted by the darkness produced from the webs of Ungoliant's children, and because of the chaos caused by the conflicting powers of Ungoliant's demonic offspring, [[Sauron]]'s malevolent sorcery, and the maze-like defenses of the Girdle of Melian. All who foolish enough to drink from its waters were filled with madness and thoughts of despair.

No one would travel through there unless they had no choice or were lost and the [[Eldar]], [[Edain]], and even Morgoth's own armies largely bypassed this region as much as possible during the Elder Days.<ref>''[[The Silmarillion]], [[Quenta Silmarillion]],'' Chapter XIV: "[[Of Beleriand and its Realms]]"</ref>

When [[Aredhel]] sought the [[Sons of Fëanor]], her and her party being turned away for [[Doriath]] tried to pass through this land were separated from her. She managed to escape to [[Himlad]] but her companions were driven out by the brood of Ungoliant and afterwards they believed her loss in its darkness. This was then reported to [[Turgon]] who despaired at the thought that she was loss.<ref>''[[The Silmarillion]], [[Quenta Silmarillion]],'' Chapter XVI: "[[Of Maeglin]]"</ref>
