See also: Rhúdel (Biome).

The Golden Easterlings are a great kingdom of Men, bound to the will of their god, the Dark Lord, and who are ready to serve him in his war against the Free Peoples. They are the grandest of all the kingdoms in the east, and they are skilled in the art of fire. They are also in a trade partnership with their neighbours, the Dorwidhrim. They also are known for their golden armour, hence the name, "Golden Easterlings".
