Ecthelion II (Third Age 2886 – 2984, aged 98 years) was the twenty-fifth Ruling Steward of Gondor. He succeeded his father Turgon at his death in Third Age 2953.

Under his rule, the stranger Thorongil fought for Gondor and the Corsairs of Umbar were routed by him. It later turned out that Thorongil was Aragorn Elessar. Gandalf was also a welcome guest in Minas Tirith at the time.

Ecthelion was followed by his son Denethor at his death in 2984.
