Stewards of Gondor

Son of Vorondil the Hunter, and Steward to Kings Eärnil II and Eärnur of Gondor. After Eärnur's loss in Minas Morgul, Mardil became the first Ruling Steward of Gondor.



The date of Mardil's birth appears only in The History of Middle-earth volume 12, The Peoples of Middle-earth. It cannot therefore be considered completely reliable.
