dol amroth

place name. *Hill of Amroth

Capital of the province of Belfalas in Gondor (LotR/750), a combination of dol(l) “head, hill” and the name Amroth, hence: “✱Hill of Amroth”.

Conceptual Development: In Lord of the Rings drafts from the 1940s, this name was briefly changed to N. Barad Amroth “Castle Amroth” (WR/423), but mostly appeared as N. Dol Amroth (WR/395, TI/310).
