Forlong was the Lord of Lossarnach, the region to the immediate southwest of Minas Tirith, who was famed for his enormous girth (he was referred to as Forlong "the Fat"). Though he was an old man at the time of the War of the Ring, he rode with two hundred of his men to the aid of the city of Gondor. His men were described as bearing great battle-axes and being well-armed. It also described them as being shorter and slightly swarthier then the men in Gondor. Forlong lost his life in the Battle of the Pelennor Fields.
