'''Loeg Ningloron''' was the region where the [[Gladden River]] flowed down from the [[Misty Mountains]] to meet the Great River [[Anduin]], south of the [[Carrock]]. In ancient times a lake had formed at their meeting-place, but by the beginning of the [[Third Age]] the lake had been replaced by a land of marshes and islets. These were the [[Gladden Fields]] (named from the giant yellow iris flowers that grew there in hosts). In [[Elvish]], the Gladden River was known as [[Gladden River|Sîr Ninglor]], from which derived the Elvish name for the Fields: Loeg Ningloron.<ref>{{UT|Gladden}}, note 13</ref>

In the first years of the Third Age, after the first defeat of [[Sauron]], [[Isildur]] was marching close to the Loeg Ningloron when he was set upon by a host of [[Orcs]]. His soldiers were overwhelmed, and he escaped into the wetlands only to be shot down by an Orc-arrow. There he was lost, and with him [[the One Ring]] that he was carrying north, which lay hidden in the marshes of Loeg Ningloron for nearly two and a half thousand years.<ref>{{UT|Gladden}}</ref>
