Name for the land to the east of the main area of Middle-Earth. The Iron Hills lie to the north, the Sea of Rhûn to the south, Dorwinion to the south-west, and Mirkwood the Great to the west. Nothing much happens here, but it's the home of Easterlings.

Its name derived from the Sindarin word for "east", applied by the Dúnedain of Gondor who ruled its western portion at their greatest extent, Rhûn is plainly known as the Eastlands in Westron. Few facts are known regarding the history of this territory beyond that it was the hunting ground of Oromë in the First Age.
