Forlong also known as Forlong the Fat and Forlong the Old, was a Man of Gondor from the province of Lossarnach, south of the White Mountains.
Forlong was the Lord of the lands of Lossarnach, and was famed for his enormous girth (hence the name 'Forlong the Fat'). Though he was well aged by the time of the War of the Ring, he came to the aid of Minas Tirith with two hundred of his men. He was unhorsed and killed by axes at the Battle of the Pelennor Fields, and buried before the gate alongside Hirluin as was told in the Song of the Mounds of Mundburg.
