History

He was the son of Ghân with whom he shared his name, and became the chief of his tribe.

During the War of the Ring, Ghân-buri-Ghân helped King Théoden and the Rohirrim to avoid an army of Orcs by taking them through the secret pass of Stonewain Valley.

In return, Théoden promised that the people of Rohan would no longer trouble the Drúedain and would drive away the Gorgûn (Orcs), that hunted them.[1]

Following the War of the Ring, Aragorn, as High King of the Reunited Kingdom, issued the decree that Drúadan Forest belonged to only Ghân and his people, and that no one else was allowed to enter the forest without their permission.[2]
