The father of Beregond of the Guard

A little-known character, mentioned only once by his son Beregond as he introduced Pippin to the city of Minas Tirith. Like his son, he seems to have lived in that city, probably during the early rule of Denethor, or that of Denethor's father Steward Ecthelion II. Though Baranor is mentioned only fleetingly in The Lord of the Rings, his name was an ancient one: it first appears as the name of a grandson of Bëor the Old during the First Age.
