His grandfather Hador was the last of the Stewards to enjoy a truly long life. This meant that his son 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 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.
