The Lord of the Anfalas

The lord of the Anfalas or Langstrand, a pastoral fief on the far western shores of Gondor, at the time of the War of the Ring. He rode to the defence of Minas Tirith with some few of his household and many Men of the Anfalas. Apart from Golasgil's own household, his followers were villagers gathered into their lord's following, and poorly equipped.

Of Golasgil's fate we have no certain knowledge, but the fact that he is not listed among those who fell in the Battle of the Pelennor suggests that he survived that battle, and perhaps stood with the Captains of the West before the Black Gate before returning to his rustic lands in the west of Gondor.
