Orcs attacked Menegroth during the First Battle of Beleriand from their camps between the Celon and Gelion rivers. Celon, being in Himlad was the land of Amrod and Amras, the twin Sons of Fëanor. Aredhel passed over Celon on her journey to meet the Sons of Fëanor before becoming lost in Nan Elmoth. Later when she and her son Maeglin left Eöl to live in Gondolin, they passed over Celon before entering Himlad. Bëor and his people settled on the eastern banks of the Celon after being given leave to settle there after being advised by Finrod. Haleth led her people across the Celon and Aros on their hard journey to the Forest of Brethil. Deadly Orc raiders followed the Celon down through into Doriath taking captives, just after the Dagor Bragollach.
