Turgon (Steward of Gondor)
|Birth||Third Age 2855 |
|Rule||Third Age 2914 - Third Age 2953|
|Death||Third Age 2953, aged 98 years |
Turgon (Third Age 2855 – 2953, aged 98 years) was the son and heir of Steward Túrin II of Gondor, in whose time Sauron declared himself openly in the land of Mordor, and began gathering the strength that would be seen in the War of the Ring. In the last year of his rule, Saruman withdrew into Isengard, and began to fortify it. So, in the last two years of Turgon's Stewardship, the scene was set for the great war that would be fought more than sixty years later.
