Places in Middle-earth


Type: Rivers & Lakes

Region: Rohan

Location: The Adorn arises from the highest part of the White Mountains (Ered Nimrais), this is the same 'knot' or confluence of mountain ranges that produces the Lefnui river. The Adorn also comes from the western slopes, but a more north facing area, and flows west and north to join the River Isen (Angren). The Adorn delineates the westward-most portion of Rohan from Drúwaith Iaur (Old Púkel-land).

Description: Tolkien does not describe the Adorn; it is named on the inside cover map of Unfinished Tales.
