Edhellond was an ancient harbour in southern Gondor.
Edhellond was located at the mouth of the rivers Ringló and Blackroot, where they flow into Cobas Haven just over twenty-five miles northeast of Dol Amroth according to the The Atlas of Middle-earth.
Edhellond was first founded before the end of the First Age by Elven remnants of Doriath who did not wish to remain in Lindon due to their dislike of the Noldor still held by these Teleri Elves. After Sauron's war on the Elves in the mid-Second Age and terrible devastation it caused, the port became a place where Elves built ships to sail westward away from Middle-earth into the Undying Lands. Amroth, Prince of Lórien, was lost at or near Edhellond in the year TA 1981 while looking for his beloved Nimrodel. One of Nimrodel's handmaidens, the elf Mithrellas, was taken by Imrazôr the Númenórean as his wife, and their son Galador founded the line of the Princes of Dol Amroth.
It is not pronounced "ED-he-lond", but "Ethellond", however with the th sound in "there".
