The First Easterling invasion of Gondor was the first war between Gondor and the Easterlings during the early stages of their threat.

HistoryEdit

The Easterlings attacked Gondor without warning or reason other then possibly that they coveted the lands of the Dúnedain, or out of some ancient hatred of them. The invasion left little to no details nor were there any named individual battles recorded but it is no doubt that the clashes were brutal and destructive as it took the armies of Gondor ten years to defeat them. Never-the-less, they were finally defeated in TA 500 by Tarostar, son of King Ostoher who took the name of Rómendacil "East-victor" after their defeat. Despite Rómendacil's glorious victory, the Easterlings would remain a threat and would again renew their attacks on Gondor forty-one years later.[1][2][3]
