Túrin II was the twenty-third Ruling Steward of Gondor.[2]

Biography

Born in TA 2815, Túrin II was the son of Thorondir, who died in TA 2882. Túrin then succeeded him as the twenty-third Ruling Steward.[2]

In TA 2885 Túrin fought the Haradrim at the Battle of the Crossings of Poros in South Ithilien with the aid of a contingent of Rohirrim led by Prince Folcred and Prince Fastred the twin sons of King Folcwine. The Haradrim were defeated but, in the course of the battle both Princes Folcred and Fastred were slain. After the victory Túrin paid King Folcwine a great weregild of gold.[2]

In TA 2901 Ithilien was attacked again by Mordor and many of the inhabitants withdrew west over the Anduin with only the hardiest of individuals remaining. Ithilien became a wilderness infested by Orcs from Mordor. In response Túrin built a number of hidden fortresses, including Henneth Annûn, as bases for the Rangers of Ithilien. The Steward also fortified the isle of Cair Andros.[2]

Túrin died in TA 2914 at the age of ninety-nine after a rule of thirty-two years and was succeeded by his son Turgon.[2]

Etymology

Túrin comes from the Sindarin word tur ("power, mastery").[3][4] He might have been named after the tragic hero of the First Age, Túrin Turambar.
