Orodreth was the sixteenth Ruling Steward of Gondor

History

He inherited the Stewardship from his father Belecthor I. Orodreth shared his name with an illustrious Elf-lord of the First Age, Orodreth the younger brother of Finrod Felagund and late ruler of Nargothrond. Orodreth the Steward has left less of a mark on history, and indeed other than the dates of his succession and death there are no records of his rule. He was succeeded by his son, who ruled as Ecthelion I.
