'''Imloth Melui''' was a region of [[Gondor]] in which [[Ioreth]] was raised before she travelled to [[Minas Tirith in Gondor|Minas Tirith]]. Though it clearly lay in some part of the land of Gondor, the precise location of Imloth Melui is never stated explicitly. Given its connection with flowers, though, it seems fair to guess that it lay near or within the flowery vale of [[Lossarnach]]. This is no more than speculation, but it is partly borne out by the fact that Ioreth was visited by her kinswoman from Imloth Melui after the [[War of the Ring]], suggesting that it was close to Minas Tirith, as was Lossarnach.
