The Balchoth were a fierce race of Easterlings, who attacked Gondor under orders of Dol Guldur.

History Edit

In the year 2510 of the Third Age they overran the plains of Calenardhon and almost destroyed the army of the Ruling Steward Cirion, but were defeated by the Éothéod under Eorl the Young at the Battle of the Field of Celebrant; the entire race was pursued and slaughtered by Eorl and his men. It is not known if any survived the massacre, but if any did, they probably joined the Easterlings around the Sea of Rhûn and were assimilated.

Like the Wainriders, whom the Balchoth could be said to have succeeded, they rode in chariots and wagons.

Real-world relation Edit

The fact that they lived near Khand, which may be based on Northern India, and their name similarity, they may be based on the Baloch people of Baluchistan, once part of British India, now in Pakistan.
