Vidugavia was a prince of the Northmen, self-styled "King of Rhovanion" who ruled the lands between Mirkwood and the River Running.[2]

History

He was the ally of Gondor's King Rómendacil II, and helped him to his victory against the Easterlings in T.A. 1248. He also received Rómendacil's son Valacar into his court as ambassador in 1250. Valacar would eventually wed Vidugavia's own daughter, Vidumavi.[2]

Vidugavia was apparently the father of other children, since he was also an ancestor of Marhari.[1]
