Ostoher (T.A. 222[1]492,[2] aged 270) was the seventh King of Gondor.

History

In T.A. 420, Ostoher rebuilt and enlarged Minas Anor.[3] Upon completion, he made Minas Anor his summer residence, which became the tradition of his successors.[4]

Later, in T.A. 490, Gondor was invaded for the first time by Easterlings. Since Ostoher had become an old man his son Tarostar worked to defeat this threat. Tarostar succeeded, but not until T.A. 500, years after Ostoher's death.[3]

Etymology

Ostoher means "Fortress Lord" in Quenya.
