Mithlond, sometimes called the Grey Havens, was an Elvish city and port on the Gulf of Lune in the Elven realm of Lindon in Middle-earth. It was also one of the main sources for the Elven fleet of ships that sailed back and forth between Númenor and Eldamar in Aman. After the death of Gil-galad, Mithlond became ruled by Círdan Shipwright.


Second AgeEdit

During the first year of the Second Age, Mithlond was built by the surviving Elves of Beleriand, those who chose to remain on Middle-earth after the wars against Morgoth. It was sometimes called the Grey Havens since it was considered a place for sanctuary. Mithlond was part of Lindon, the kingdom directly ruled by Gil-galad, last High King of the Ñoldor in Middle-earth. Even after the death of Gil-galad, the high elven population began to increase again and remained a focal point of the history in the northern part of Middle-earth.
