The Celebros was a river of the Beleriand, a tributary to Taeglin that flowed past the Forest of Brethil.

According Karen Wynn Fonstad's The Atlas of Middle-earth, the Celebros was approximately twenty to twenty-five miles long.[1]


Glaurung was slain by Túrin Turambar near where this river met Taeglin, and Nienor Níniel committed suicide by jumping into it, in a state of utter despair.[2][3]


Celebros is a Sindarin word that meant 'Silver-foam'.[4]
