Northmen

The descent of the Men of the Twilight was rather more involved than this simple diagram can show. For more on this subject, see the entry for Northmen.

A name given to those Men who shared descent with the Edain, but did not set out from Middle-earth at the beginning of the Second Age to become Númenóreans. The name is given especially to those blonde-haired peoples who were connected with the Third House of the Edain (commonly called the House of Hador). These people settled in the northern lands of Middle-earth, and thus became known to history as the Northmen, though their descendants travelled widely. Most prominent among these descendants were the Rohirrim, who were granted the land of Rohan by Gondor after giving their aid at the Battle of the Field of Celebrant.
