Boromir (Steward of Gondor)

(For other characters see Boromir (disambiguation))

Boromir (Third Age 2410 – 2489, aged 79 years) was the eleventh Ruling Steward of Gondor.

Boromir succeeded his father Denethor I at his death in Third Age 2477, and inherited a realm under siege. Ithilien had been lost to the fierce Uruk-hai, and Boromir fought several extensive campaigns to win back the land. Eventually he succeeded, but Ithilien remained depopulated because of the threat from Minas Morgul.

He was followed by his son Cirion at his death in 2489.
