This article is about the healer of Minas Tirith. For the wife of the ranger Talion, see Ioreth.

Ioreth was a woman of Gondor, originally from the province of Lossarnach and a healer.


Ioreth was born in Imloth Melui sometime in the late Third Age. At the time of the War of the Ring, Ioreth was the eldest of the women who served in the Houses of Healing in Minas Tirith. Her folk wisdom was exceeded only by her loquacity. She was the one who told Gandalf the old lore that "The hands of the king are the hands of a healer," which inspired him to bring Aragorn to the Houses of Healing to tend the wounded. She had at least two sisters and kin who lived in Imloth Melui.[1]
