This article is about the Steward of Gondor. For the Captain of Gondor, see Beregond (Captain).

Beregond was the twentieth Ruling Steward of Gondor.

Biography

Beregond was born in TA 2700 to the Steward Beren.

During the Long Winter of TA 2758 - TA 2759, the Corsairs of Umbar attacked Gondor and a combined force of Dunlendings, Easterlings and Corsairs besieged Rohan. Initially both realms were under attack and neither could help the other, however Beregond was a great warrior and sea captain and the Corsairs who attacked Gondor were defeated by him before the coming of spring. Beregond then went north to Rohan to relieve the besieged Rohirrim. Together the forces of Beregond and Fréaláf Hildeson, the King of Rohan, defeated the Corsairs, Easterlings and Dunlendings.[2]

Beregond's father, Beren died in TA 2763 and Beregond succeeded him as the twentieth Ruling Steward.

In the thirtieth year of Beregond's stewardship in TA 2793, Middle-earth saw the beginning of the six year War of the Dwarves and Orcs that culminated in the Battle of Azanulbizar in TA 2799. Following that defeat many Orcs sought to take refuge in the safety of the White Mountains. The Men of Gondor led by Beregond slew many Orcs that attempted to establish themselves in the mountains, and prevented the Orcs from establishing large scale settlements and strongholds.[2]

Beregond died in TA 2811 at the age of 111 years old and was succeeded by his son Belecthor II.[2]

Etymology

It is possible that the name Beregond means "Bold Stone", from the Sindarin words beren ("bold") and gond ("stone").[3][4]
