Angbor was a Man of Gondor and the Lord of Lamedon at the end of the Third Age and beginning of the Fourth Age.


During the last months of the War of the Ring, Angbor was met by Aragorn when the latter arrived from the Paths of the Dead. He was in battle with the Corsairs of Umbar, when the Army of the Dead gave their aid. Angbor was the only man who had courage enough to meet with Aragorn, who instructed him to gather his men and ride to the aid of Minas Tirith. It was later mentioned that he and his men arrived at Minas Tirith during the time Aragorn and company left for the Black Gate. It was Aragorn who named Angbor "the Fearless".[1][2]


Angbor is a Sindarin word meaning "iron fist".[3]

In The Lord of the Rings Online Angbor is the Lord of Lamedon, ruling from the city of Calembel. During the War of the Ring he is charged by Prince Imrahil with protecting the land from the Corsairs of Umbar while other Lord of Gondor ride to the defence of Minas Tirith.
