Tol Morwen

Type: Islands & Coasts

Region: Arnor/Eriador/Lindon

Location: An island off the coast of Lindon; all that remains of Cabed Naeramarth, with its stone marker memorializing Morwen Eledhwen, Túrin Turambar, and Nienor Níniel, after the Sinking of Beleriand.


It is told that a seer and harp-player of Brethil named Glirhuin made a song, saying that the Stone of the Hapless should not be defiled by Morgoth nor ever thrown down, not though the Sea should drown all the land; as after indeed befell, and still Tol Morwen stands alone in the water beyond the new coasts that were made in the days of the wrath of the Valar.
