Moraelin or Black Lake is a lake in the Great Northern Mountains.

It's the only place where Silverthorn grows and is a place sacred to the moredhel and no elf may set foot upon.

A legendary Prince of Elvandar walked the edge of Moraelin until a canyon was created around it, called the Tracks of the Hopeless. For he may not enter Moralein, nor will leave until he has found which will save his beloved. Legend says that he still walks there still.

Behind the scenesEdit

"Moraelin" actually would mean "Black Lake" in Tolkien's Sindarin language, although the word itself doesn't occur in his work.

In Sindarin mor = "black", aelin = "lake".
