Belfalas was a coastal region located in southern Gondor.
Early Third AgeEdit
It formed a part of Dor-en-Ernil, or the "Prince's land". The Prince in question was the Lord of Dol Amroth, who lived at the city bearing his name. At the start of the second millennium of the Third Age, a certain Imrazôr the Númenórean lived in and ruled over the Belfalas. He married Mithrellas, a Silvan Elf of Lórien, and their son Galador became the first Prince of Dol Amroth.
The Belfalas was also home to an old Elf haven named Edhellond. Its chief city was the Prince's residence of Dol Amroth. South of the Belfalas lay a great Bay, which was named after it the Bay of Belfalas. The climate hovered near the moderate and the extreme with mild winters and hot, dry summers and the terrain consisted of scattered woodlands.
War of the RingEdit
During the War of the Ring, the Belfalas was raided by the Corsairs of Umbar, and therefore did not send any men to help defend Minas Tirith, until Aragorn liberated the coast with the Grey Company, freeing Gondor's southern armies to follow him north to relieve Minas Tirith.
