Battle of the Plains
|Parentage||Unknown; descendant of Vidugavia|
In T.A. 1851, a tribe of Easterlings called the Wainriders began invading from the East. Marhari led the soldiers of Rhovanion, together with the armies of Gondor under King Narmacil II, against the invaders at the Battle of the Plains in 1856. The battle was a disaster, as Narmacil was killed and Marhari fell in his rearguard. The Wainriders then overran Rhovanion and enslaved its people.
fl. 1856 - 1899
Marhari is a Gothic name meaning 'horse-soldier'. The first element is related to English "mare" (see mearas). The second element -hari is a simplified version of Gothic -harya "armyman, warrior" (seen also in Vinitharya) to indicate a later age.
