This article is about the fictional river Gladden. You may have been looking for an article on Washington Gladden , an advocate of the Social Gospel movement.
Called Sîr Ninglor (River Goldwater) by the Elves, the Gladden was a short but important river of the Vales of Anduin. Beginning as two unnamed arms in the Hithaeglir, it flowed westwards to the Great River Anduin, which it met in a series of marshes called the Gladden Fields.
Much later during the Third Age some Stoors lived near the streams of Gladden, and from them came Déagol who found the ring, was killed by Sméagol (Gollum), who long held the Ring. Gollum eventually followed the stream up to its source, ending up in forgotten caves near Goblin Town.
