The Balchoth were a fierce group of Easterlings.


Under the influence of Sauron from Dol Guldur, the Balchoth attacked Gondor in TA 2510. They overran the plains of Calenardhon and almost destroyed the army of the Ruling Steward Cirion, but were defeated by the Éothéod under Eorl the Young at the Battle of the Field of Celebrant; the entire army was pursued and slaughtered by Eorl and his men. The Balchoth do not reappear in sources after this, although Easterlings continued to trouble Rohan, killing Eorl and finally being driven off by Brego.

Like the Wainriders, whom the Balchoth could be said to have succeeded, they rode in chariots and wagons.[1]
