After the Rebellion of the Ñoldor, this land was committed to the rule of Caranthir, the fourth Son of Fëanor, and after him it was often called Dor Caranthir and Talath Rhûnen.  The Dwarf-Road passed through the southern tip of this land and as this was Caranthir's territory all who trafficked through there pay toll to Caranthir, thus making him very wealthy.
The Haladin briefly dwelt here until they were nearly wiped out in an Orc-raid. Thargelion was ravaged by the Orcs of Morgoth during the Dagor Bragollach forcing Caranthir and his people to flee.
Its other names, Dor Caranthir means "Land of Caranthir", and Talath Rhúnen means "the East Vale", from the Sindarin talath ("field, plains") and rhûn ("east"). Tolkien's first name for this location was Radhrost, as told of in the Index of The War of the Jewels.
