Tarn Aeluin, also known simply as Aeluin, was the name given by the Grey-elves and the Edain to a small, clear lake located in the center of the highlands of eastern Dorthonion, at the entrance of the shallow pass leading to Ladros.[1]

It is said to have been hallowed by Melian the Maia. It was here that Barahir and his twelve comrades hid from Morgoth's forces after the Dagor Bragollach.[2]

EtymologyEdit

Tarn Aeluin was Sindarin for 'Blue-mere'.[3]
