Forlindon on a map of Lindon

Forlindon was the northern part of Lindon which is separated from Harlindon, the southern part by the Gulf of Lune along the coasts of western Middle-earth.

The Elven-haven and harbour of Forlond lay on the southern coast of the region, and was ruled by Gil-galad.[1]

Like the rest of Lindon it is a remnant of the Beleriand that sank under the Great Sea after the War of Wrath, at the end of the First Age.[2]


The name Forlindon possibly means "North Lindon", from the Quenya word formen and Sindarin words for, forn, forod ("north") and Lindon.[3][4]
