Lord of Isengard was the title born by the master of Isengard, a Gondorian chieftain in command of the local garrison. The guardians with time became secretive and mingled with the Dunlendings until the Gondorian line failed.[1]

Saruman later declared himself as Lord of Isengard, when he was granted to settle in Orthanc.[2] Following the death Steward Turgon, the Wizard no longer paid heed to Gondor and made Isengard into his fortress,[3] eventually abandoning his mission to fall into mimicry of the Enemy as his duplicitous vassal, weaving plots to suit his own personal ambitions.[4]
