Herumor was a Black Númenórean who lived in the late Second Age. After the Downfall of Númenor he, along with Fuinur, rose to power among the Haradrim and served Sauron.[1]

[edit] Etymology

Herumor means "Black Lord" in Quenya (from heru = "lord" and morë = "dark").

[edit] Portrayal in Adaptations

In the defunct Middle-earth Role Playing game from the 1980s, Herumor is given an extended history. Fuinur is then his older brother. Tolkien, however, had nothing to do with writing this history.
