Dor-lómin was the southwestern part of Hithlum, bordered in the east by the Mountains of Mithrim, and in the north by the river which formed the Rainbow Cleft, also known as Annon-in-Gelydh. It was first colonised by the Noldor shortly after they arrived in Middle-earth, and for a long time was ruled by Fingon son of Fingolfin, before he took over as High King of the Noldor after his father was killed.

By this time the Edain known as the House of Marach had entered Beleriand, and Fingon granted them the land of Dor-lómin as a fief.After the Nirnaeth Arnoediad (“Battle of Unnumbered Tears”), the House of Hador was destroyed or scattered, and Easterlings dwelt in Dor-lómin.

Like the rest of Hithlum it was destroyed during the War of Wrath.

Then Huor spoke and said: “Yet if it stands but a little while, then out of your house shall come the hope of Elves and Men. This I say to you, lord, with the eyes of death: though we part here for ever, and I shall not look on your white walls again, from you and from me a new star shall arise. Farewell!”

«The Voice of Melkor»

But though deep down within those halls Melko heard him and was in doubt, he would not come, but sent Langon his servant and said by him that “Behold, he was rejoiced and in wonder to see the Gods before his gates. Now would he gladly welcome them, yet for the poverty of his abode not more than two of them could he fitly entertain; and he begged that neither Manwë nor Tulkas be of the two, for the one merited and the other demanded hospitality of great cost and richness. Should this not be to their mind then would he fain hearken to Manwë’s herald and learn what it were the Gods so greatly desired that they must leave their soft couches and indolence of Valinor for the bleak places where Melko laboured humbly and did his toilsome work.”

And since, when the fires were subdued or buried beneath the primeval hills, there was need of light, Aulë at the prayer of Yavanna wrought two mighty lamps for the lighting of the Middle-Earth which he had built amid the encircling seas. Then Varda filled the lamps and Manwë hallowed them, and the Valar set them upon high pillars, more lofty far than are any mountains of the later days.

The Bëorians were noted as being very akin to the Ñoldor in their appearance; with dark hair, grey eyes and stout build and many of those descended from Bëorian stock (or part Bëorian) had these traits. Furthermore, the majority of the Elendili were those of Bëorian descent. This is because the majority of the Beorians were settled in the West of Numenor, which later became the area controlled by the Faithful Lords of Andúnië. Evidence of this can be seen in Aragorn II’s physical description: lean, dark and tall, witha shaggy head of dark hair flecked with grey, and in a pale stern face a pair of keen grey eyes.

In all the deeds of Melkor the Morgoth upon Arda, in his vast works and in the deceits of his cunning, Sauron had a part, and was only less evil than his master in that for long he served another and not himself.
