Erinin River

The Erinin River flows west out of the Spine of the World and forms the southern borders of Shienar, then Arafel. It then turns south and flows all the way to the Sea of Storms ending at the Fingers of the Dragon at Tear. It is the western border of Cairhien and the eastern border of Andor. The Erinin River splits at the island of Tar Valon. The western branch is called the Alindrelle Erinen and the eastern branch, the Osendrelle Erinin.
