Physical Description
Belecthor I (Third Age 2545 – 2655, aged 110 years) was the fifteenth Ruling Steward of Gondor.


Belecthor succeeded his father Húrin II at his death in Third Age 2628. The Corsairs of Umbar were the major threat to Gondor at the time, although no major events are recorded.

Belecthor had two children: Morwen and Orodreth.

He was followed by his son Orodreth at his death in 2655.


Belecthor could be composed of the words beleg and thor therefore meaning "mighty eagle".
