Hirluin

Revision as of 18:58, 30 June 2006 by Ebakunin (Talk | contribs)

Hirluin the Fair (died Third Age 3039) was the leader of those who dwelt in the Green Hills of Pinnath Gelin, in the distant west of Gondor. Curiously, though he was lord of the Green Hills, and his soldiers were clad in green, Hirluin's name seems to mean "Blue Lord". He was one of the many leaders of Men who brought companies to Minas Tirith, and he fought bravely in the Battle of the Pelennor Fields, rushing to the aid of Éomer and the Rohirrim. He was killed in the latter moments of that battle.
