Gondorian by Liz Danforth

Gondorians was a name that referred to the inhabitants of Gondor.[1][2] Although the people of Gondor initially were entirely of Númenórean descent, called the Dúnedain of the South, they came to mingle with many different peoples, notably with the influx of Northmen from Rhovanion.[3]
