Collectively, the Righteous Kingdoms of Middle Earth
where the Free Peoples
dwell. Not to be confused with "The West
", which may refer to the fair lands of the Valar
, the white beaches far across the ocean, which have since been lifted into the Sky when the earth was made round
The Western World may be used in contrast to The East - those lands under the Dominion of the Dark Master, Sauron, where the White Wizard does not venture.
Notable kingdoms of the Western World include Gondor; capital Minas Tirith, Rohan; capital Edoras, as well as Elven Lorien and Rivendell.
Evil Kingdoms of The East include those of the Easterlings and the Southrons, who fought on the side of the Dark Master against Gondor.
