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

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 his committed suicide by jumping into it, in state of utter despair.[2][3]


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