Tol Uinen

Type: Islands & Coasts

Region: Numenor

Meaning: Isle of Uinen

Location: A small island in the Bay of Rómenna, upon which Aldarion built a lighthouse.

Description: ... at times [Aldarion] would sail in [the Eämbar] from haven to haven of Númenor, but for the most part it lay at anchor off Tol Uinen: and that was a little isle in the bay of Rómenna that was set there by Uinen1 the Lady of the Seas.

Unfinished Tales, Part 2, Ch 2, Aldarion and Erendis

... Aldarion turned his thoughts again to the works at Rómenna, and busied himself with the building of great sea-walls, and the raising of a tall tower upon Tol Uinen: Calmindon, the Light-tower, was its name.

Unfinished Tales, Part 2, Ch 2, Aldarion and Erendis


1 The Númenóreans lived long in [Uinen's] protection, and held her in reverence equal to the Valar.
