Húrin II (Third Age 2515[1] – 2628,[2] aged 113 years) was the fourteenth Ruling Steward of Gondor.

History

Húrin II, like many of the House of Húrin, was given a name from legends of the First Age.[3] His name came from a hero of that time, Húrin Thalion, the Lord of Dor-lómin.[4] He was actually the third of his family with this name, preceded by Húrin of Emyn Arnen (the founder of the house of the Stewards) and Húrin I (one of the Stewards who had ruled during the Watchful Peace).[5]

Húrin ruled Gondor as its Steward for twenty-three years, and was succeeded by his son, Belecthor I.[2]
