This article is about a Gondorian. For the Black Númenórean, see Herumor.

Herumor was a leader of a secret Melkorism cult growing in Gondor during the Fourth Age.

BiographyEdit

Around FO 220, Herumor led a secret cult which worshiped Melkor and Sauron. He fought against Eldarion and the Reunited Kingdom.[1]

EtymologyEdit

The name Herumor translates into "Dark Lord" from heru ("lord") and mor ("dark").[2]

Behind the ScenesEdit

These events were told in the unfinished tale known as "The New Shadow", Tolkien wrote about thirty pages of this story but there was no evil power left, for all of Melkor's power was extinguished in the First Age and all of Sauron's in the Third Age. It is not known what race he was. He could have been a Man but that was never established, as the story was never finished.[1]

In the Rome: Total War mod based on this transcript of Tolkein's, this Herumor was the former Mouth of Sauron, who was spared after the fall of Mordor only to take up the mantle of Dark Lord to sew corruption from within the Reunited Kingdom.
