Húrin II (Third Age 2515 – 2628, aged 113 years) was the fourteenth Ruling Steward of Gondor.

History

Húrin was the son of Steward Hallas, and grandson of the famous Cirion who granted the green northern lands of Calenardhon to the Rohirrim. Húrin II shared his name with an illustrious line of predecessors, including Húrin I who ruled during the Watchful Peace, Húrin of Emyn Arnen who founded the house of the Stewards, and ultimately Húrin Thalion himself, Lord of Dor-lómin in the First Age. Húrin ruled Gondor as its Steward for twenty-three years, and was succeeded by his son, Belecthor I.
