The '''Girdle of Melian''' was the fence of enchantment set around [[Thingol]]'s kingdom of [[Doriath]] by [[Melian]] his Queen, preventing entry into his land without his will and consent. [[Beren]] was unique in being the only person to pass through the Girdle without the knowledge of Doriath's rulers.  The protection of the Girdle encompassed the Forests of [[Neldoreth]] and [[Forest of Region|Region]], the West March of [[Nivrim]], and part of [[Aelin-uial]], the Twilight Meres.<ref>{{S|Beleriand}}</ref>
