[...] in the great fief of Belfalas, dwelt Prince Imrahil in his castle of Dol Amroth by the sea, and he was of high blood, and his folk also, tall men and proud with sea-grey eyes.

The Return of the King, Minas Tirith

Dor-en-Ernil (Sindarin for "Land of the Prince") is a fiefdom of Gondor and home to the Swan Knights. The mighty city and port of Dol Amroth is situated within these lands.

Similarly to Rohan, Dor-en-ernil is a great place for a fortress or base to due to the uncanny amounts of extremely powerful mounted mobs which evil players always dread.

Upon entering this biome, the player earns the achievement "Land of the Prince".
