Egalmoth was the eighteenth Ruling Steward of Gondor.[2]

BiographyEdit

Egalmoth was born in TA 2626. He was the grandson of Morwen, the daughter of Belecthor I, and the great-nephew of Orodreth. When, the seventeenth Ruling Steward Ecthelion I died in TA 2698 without issue, Egalmoth succeeded his cousin as Steward. The majority of Egalmoth's rule passed uneventfully; however, three years before his death in TA 2740 the orcs renewed their war on Gondor. Egalmoth died in TA 2743 at the age of 117 years old after a rule of forty-five years, and was succeeded by his son Beren.[2]

EtymologyEdit

Egalmoth might have been named after the Lord of Gondolin, Egalmoth. Though the name has unknown meaning, it consists of the Sindarin word moth ("dusk").[3]
