Beren (Steward of Gondor)
|Birth||T.A. 2655 |

|Death||T.A. 2763 (aged 108)|
|House||House of Húrin|
Beren spent much of his reign fighting the Corsairs of Umbar in southern Gondor, for the land was assailed by three great fleets from Umbar and from Harad. During the Long Winter of T.A. 2758 - 2759, Rohan came under attack from the Dunlendings, but as both nations were under attack neither could help the other. Therefore when Saruman suddenly appeared and requested leave to dwell in Isengard, Beren gladly gave the Wizard the keys to Orthanc.
