The Lord of Lossarnach was the lord of the flowered vales of the White Mountains that lay to the south and west of Minas Tirith. Almost nothing is known of the history and descent of this title, except the name of its holder during the War of the Ring. That was Forlong the Fat, who rode to Minas Tirith with two hundred men from his homeland,[1] and fell in the Battle of the Pelennor Fields.[2] Whether Forlong left an heir to inherit his lordship is unknown.
