Bow of Bregor

An heirloom of the Númenóreans

One of the great treasures of the Edain of the First Age that were preserved in Númenor. In origin it was the bow of Bregor son of Boromir of the House of Bëor, who was the grandfather of Beren and ancestor of many famous heroes. If there were any legends associated with the Bow, they are now lost, as was the Bow itself in the Downfall of Númenor in II 3319.
