Dol Amroth

Type: Kingdoms, Realms, Lands

Region: Gondor

Meaning: Hill of Amroth

Location: In Belfalas, a part of Gondor; on the coast.

Description: It is described as "a stronghold upon the high promontory of Dol Amroth," and is at the southern coast of Cobas Haven, a small bay.

This land was given to Imrahil's ancestors by Elendil, "with whom they had kinship." Christopher Tolkien points out an incongruity: that the area would not have been named Dol Amroth until after the disappearance of Amroth, presumably by drowning, in 1981 of the third age.

Information from Unfinished Tales, Part III, II, Cirion And Eorl And The Friendship Of Gondor And Rohan, (iv) The Tradition of Isildur, Note 39

Cobas Haven is mentioned in The Treason of Isengard, HoMe VII, Ch XV, The First Map Of The Lord Of The Rings
