Madril was Ranger of Ithilien and Faramir's second in command. Madril was invented by Warner Bros. for The Lord of the Rings film series, where he was portrayed by John Bach.

History[edit | edit source]

Madril was a Ranger of some experience. He helped Faramir in his ambush of Haradrim in Ithilien, where they also captured Frodo and Sam. After a short stay at Henneth Annûn, the company moved on to Osgiliath to reinforce its garrison.[1]

Despite initial doubts, the Orcs held off an attack. Madril sent scouts to Cair Andros to see if there was any enemy activity in the North. However, the Orcs crossed the Anduin in Osgiliath with boats, and Faramir's men were caught unawares.

The orcs overpowered the Gondorian troops, and at Madril's advice, Faramir called for a retreat. During the call, Madril was badly wounded. He was left behind in the evacuation. As he lay dying, Gothmog stabbed him with a spear, killing him outright.[2]
