Mirkwood is a name used for two distinct fictional forests in J. R. R. Tolkien's legendarium.
In the First Age, the highlands of Dorthonion north of Beleriand were known as Mirkwood after falling under Morgoth's control. Along with the rest of the region west of Ered Luin, this forest disappeared after the cataclysm of the War of Wrath, although a few of its peaks may have survived as an island far off the coast of Lindon.
In the Second Age, the large forest in Rhovanion, east of the Anduin in Middle-earth, was was known as Greenwood the Great.
