Carnen from map

The Redwater shown in relation to the Iron Hills and the Lonely Mountain

Redwater, also known as Carnen, was a river in the region of Rhovanion in Middle-earth. The Redwater originated in the Iron Hills and was east of the Lonely Mountain. It flowed southward before emptying into the River Running, which was about 250 Númenórean miles to the south. This river, in turn, flowed into the Sea of Rhûn and then past the land of Dorwinion.[1]

HistoryEdit

During the War of the Ring, in the year TA 3019, a large force of Easterlings under Sauron's command crossed and forded this river on their way to attack the Dwarvish realm of Lonely Mountain and the Mannish kingdom of Dale.[2]

EtymologyEdit

The word Carnen is the Sindarin equivalent of Redwater, the name for the river in the common tongue.[3]
