'''Baranor''' was a little-known character, mentioned only once by his son [[Beregond]] as he introduced [[Pippin]] to the city of [[Minas Tirith]]. Like his son, he seems to have lived in that city, probably during the early rule of [[Denethor]], or that of [[Denethor]]'s father Steward [[Ecthelion II]]. Though Baranor is mentioned only fleetingly in [[The Lord of the Rings]], his name was an ancient one: it first appears as the name of a grandson of [[Bëor]] the Old during the [[First Age]].
