Dol Amroth was a feudal principality which formed part of the Kingdom of Gondor in the southern reaches of that realm. It was ruled by the Prince of Dol Amroth; the banner of the Silver Swan of Dol Amroth flew alongside that of the Gondor White Tree throughout the Third Age.

The first Lord of Dol Amroth was Galador, son of Imrazôr of the Númenóreans. Imrazôr was the son of Adrahil I, who was already known as the Prince, and lived in Belfalas. At some point, Imrazôr moved to the area where once was the elven haven of Edhellond. According to tradition, there he married Mithrellas, a Silvan Elf of Lórien who had accompanied Nimrodel, the beloved of Lórien's king Amroth, on her journey towards Edhellond, but had become lost along with her mistress. Therefore Galador and his descendants had claim to Elven blood.

After Imrazôr's death (Mithrellas' fate is nowhere described, only that she eventually left Imrazôr and Galador), Galador went on to found the city and later the Principality of Dol Amroth. He is counted as its first Lord. The specific date of its foundation is nowhere recounted.

A Map of Dol Amroth

The city of Dol Amroth was built south of Edhellond at the inlet of Cobas Haven in the Bay of Belfalas. In the north of the city was built the Seaward Tower of Tirith Aear. The standard of the city was a silver swan, as seen in the banners carried by the knights from there at the Battle of the Pelennor Fields.

The lands of Dol Amroth were also known as Dor-en-Ernil, or 'Lands of the Prince': initially this name was applied to the area of Belfalas where Adrahil I and Imrazôr lived, but after Galador it was also applied to the area of Dol Amroth itself.
