365 Days of Middle-earth ~ Day 266: Aelin-uial

Aelin-uial (S. ‘Meres of Twilight,’ ‘lake twilight’) was the name given to the region of marshes bordering Beleriand by the Elvenfolk of Doriath. It was here that the river Aros flowed into the Sirion, and where the waters of the latter briefly diverged before rejoining into the Falls of Sirion. After the rebellion of Morgoth, the Meres became part of the defensive circle of enchantment (the Girdle of Melian) woven around Doriath by Lady Melian.
