'''Orodreth''' was the sixteenth Ruling [[Steward of Gondor]], who inherited the [[Stewardship]] from his father [[Belecthor I]].

Orodreth the Steward has left less of a mark on history, and indeed other than his dates we have no records of his rule. He was succeeded by his son, who ruled as [[Ecthelion I]].
