Lake Evendim, or Nenuial ("Lake of Twilight") in Sindarin, was a lake in northern Eriador.

The lake was about 100 miles north of the Shire. It was approximately 50 miles from north to south and 20 miles east to west[1] and was bounded on the west and south by the Emyn Uial (Hills of Evendim).[2] The Baranduin or Brandywine River flowed out of the lake to the east.[1]

History

It is said that after the War of Wrath both Galadriel and Celeborn crossed into Eriador and lived by Lake Evendim. They departed for Eregion in S.A. 700.[3] In the Second Age there were Men (Middle Men) living about Lake Evendim, some of whom met with the Númenóreans when they first sailed back to Middle-earth.[4][5]

Some Laiquendi seem to have removed to Eriador, and dwelled on the shores of Lake Nenuial during the Second Age.[6]


After the fall of Númenor Elendil established the capital of Arnor, Annúminas, on the southern shore of the lake.[7] In T.A. 1975[8] the Battle of Fornost was fought on the plain between Lake Evendim and the North Downs.[9]

Portrayal in adaptations

2007-: The Lord of the Rings Online:

While possible to swim across, swift travel across Lake Evendim (located in the region of Evendim) is provided by several boatkeepers.[10]
