Brego (Third Age 2512 – 2570, aged 58 years) was the second King of Rohan.

History

Brego built the Golden Hall of Meduseld, and made Edoras the capital of Rohan.

His eldest son Baldor in his pride went into the Paths of the Dead never to be found again, and Brego died of grief soon after. He was followed by his second son, Aldor.
