Borondir also known as Borondir Udalraph was a Man of Gondor.

BiographyEdit

Borondir was a rider from out of Minas Tirith and was descended from the Northmen of Rhovanion who entered Gondor in the noontide of that realm. He was an excellent horseman. Borondir and five other messengers were charged with bringing Cirion's message requesting aid from the Éothéod led by Eorl the Young, the Lord of the Éothéod after Gondor was in danger of being overrun by the Balchoth, in TA 2509. His company set out on the tenth day of Súlimë with the Red Arrow and a stone bearing the Seal of the Stewards and rode north along the Anduin. All of his companions were slain save for him and after fifteen days without food, he finally came to Eorl on the twenty-fifth of Súlimë and delivered the message despite being weakened near to dead.

After recovering himself, he decided to ride with Eorl to war on the sixth day of Víressë.[1] He led a charge across the Limlight in aid of Cirion whom he died defending in the Battle of the Field of Celebrant. He deeds before and after the battle left him greatly mourned by both the Éothéod and Gondor and was laid to rest in the Hallows of Minas Tirith. He was remembered in the song Rochon Methestel.[2]

EtymologyEdit

The name Borondir means "Steadfast Man" (boron: "steadfast, enduring", dir: "man"). His surname "Udalraph" means "the stirrupless", it refers to his qualities as a rider because he didn't need stirrups, whilst a normal rider of Gondor did.[2]
