His grandfather [[Hador (Steward of Gondor)|Hador]] was the last of the Stewards to enjoy a truly long life. This meant that his son [[Barahir (Steward of Gondor)|Barahir]], and his grandson Dior, both came late to the Stewardship and ruled for only a brief time. Dior was the last Steward to enjoy an untroubled rule, as his heir [[Denethor I|Denethor]] would see the breaking of the [[Watchful Peace]] and the beginning of centuries of warfare. Dior is remarkable as the only recorded Ruling Steward to leave no direct heir. He was succeeded by his sister-son [[Denethor I]].
