Núrn is a region in the southernmost part of the realm of Mordor that holds the inland Sea of Núrnen

Nurn is the only fertile land in Mordor

Núrn was a semi-arid place due to its close proximity to Gorgoroth and consisted mostly of short grass landed plains, fertile enough for farming to support the armies of Sauron, as opposed to the arid plateau of Gorgoroth, which is north-west of Núrn.[1]


Núrn was partially inhabited by Westron-speaking men that were enslaved by the Dark Lord. After the overthrow of Sauron, the peoples of this land presumably gained their freedom and might have been allowed to govern it for themselves.[2]
