Early in Vorondil's Stewardship Gondor was attacked and suffered a serious defeat. In T.A. 2000, the Nazgûl issued from Mordor to besiege Minas Ithil. The city fell in 2002 and with it they took the Palantír therein.
Vorondil was remembered as "Vorondil the Hunter" for his hunting of the Kine of Araw, found near the shores of the Sea of Rhûn. From one of the wild white oxen he fashioned a great horn, bound with silver and written with characters. Boromir was the last to carry this horn, which had been passed to the eldest son for generations within the House of Húrin.
