Natrin's Barrow was a white stone fortress in Arad Doman, in the form of several towers stacked one on top of another, that more resembled a palace than a fortress. It was built to guard against incursions through the Mountains of Mist from Manetheren, but had not been used for military purposes since the Trolloc Wars. It was located close to a small lake near the southern border of Arad Doman and until a few centuries earlier was not part of the country, having previously been owned by a minor noble from Toman Head. After being seized, it was used as a retreat by several kings until it was given to a distant cousin of the royal family in about 950NE.
