365 Days of Middle-earth ~ Day 131: Nan Elmoth


Nan Elmoth (S. ‘Valley of Star-dusk’) was the forest in East Beleriand, situated on the eastern bank of the Celon. Shaped like a sickle moon, it was three leagues wide and seven long. It was here that Elwë first laid eyes upon Melian, and the spot upon which they plighted their troth. When they made their new home in Doriath, the forest became the home of the Dark Elf Eöl.
