A people of Khand

A little-known people dwelling in the land of Khand, southeast of Mordor, at the time of the War of the Ring. They were allied to Sauron, and their warriors formed part of the reserve of Sauron's army at the Battle of the Pelennor Fields. After the loss of the Lord of the Nazgûl they were thrust into the battle by his lieutenant Gothmog, but their forces were ultimately defeated.
