'The Wronged'; an alias taken by Túrin Turambar when he dwelt among the Gaurwaith.


Notes

1

The only definite date we have for Túrin's use of the name Neithan is I 484, when he used it to introduce himself to the Gaurwaith outlaws whom he joined and ultimately came to lead. It's not clear how long the name continued in use, but the latest possible date would be I 489, when the outlaw band was destroyed by Orcs.
