The Iron Mountains, also known in Sindarin  as the Ered Engrin, were an immense mountain range in the north.

Of old, the Iron Mountains connected the Blue Mountains (Ered Luin) of the West to the Red Mountains (Orocarni) of the East, but in the wars between the Valar and Melkor the mountain range was distorted.

Melkor's great fortresses of Utumno and Angband were built in these mountains. North of the range lay the Forodwaith, a region of ever-lasting cold.

After the War of Wrath the Iron Mountains were broken and disappeared for a great part of their length. Remnants of the range in the Third Age included the Mountains of Angmar in northern Eriador, as well as the Ered Mithrin and the Iron Hills of northern Wilderland.

After the destruction of Beleriand and the Iron Mountains (or most of them),  the Iron Hills, the kingdom of King Dain Ironfoot became known as the Iron Mountains.
