Southern Army

Gondor’s defence against the Haradrim

The smaller of the two armies formed by King Ondoher of Gondor, to protect his kingdom against the double threat of the Wainriders to the northeast, and the Haradrim to the south. The Captaincy of the Southern Army was given to Eärnil, a descendant of the royal line of Gondor.
