Rivil

Type: Rivers & Lakes

Region: Beleriand & North

Location: A stream flowing northwest into Sirion at the Fen of Serech; its source, on the north slopes of Dorthonion, is known as Rivil's Well.

Description:

But the Captain of Morgoth... marched on therefore until the front of his battle was drawn up before the stream of Sirion, from the walls of the fortress of Eithel Sirion to the inflowing of Rivil at the Fen of Serech....

So it was that Turgon fought his way southward, until coming behind the guard of Húrin and Huor he passed down Sirion and escaped.... But the brothers drew the remnant of the Men of the house of Hador about them, and foot by foot they withdrew, until they came behind the Fen of Serech, and had the stream of Rivil before them. There they stood and gave way no more.
