Marhari was a Northman noble of the Kingdom of Rhovanion and a descendent of King Vidugavia.


In TA 1856, Marhari and King Narmacil II of Gondor led a combined force of Men from Gondor and Men from Rhovanion into the disastrous Battle of the Plains where they were both slain, with Marhari slain in the rearguard.

His son Marhwini led a group of survivors to a refuge in the Vales of Anduin where they founded a colony and became the Éothéod, the ancestors of the Rohirrim.[1]
