Disaster of the Gladden Fields
|House||House of Isildur|
|Siblings||Elendur, Aratan and Valandil|
In the War of the Last Alliance of Elves and Men, Ciryon and his brother Aratan did not participate in the Siege of Barad-dûr. Isildur had sent these two brothers to man Minas Ithil so as to guard Cirith Dúath and prevent a possible breakout of Sauron should he escape the siege.
In the Disaster of the Gladden Fields, Ciryon was the first brother to die; Aratan was mortally wounded while trying to save him. After the fall of these two brothers, Elendur advised his father to put on the One Ring and escape.
