Targon was a Man of Gondor.


Targon worked in the storehouse and buttery for Beregond's company in the Guard of the Citadel of Minas Tirith. He gave Beregond and Pippin the last of the winter's store of bread, butter, cheese, apples, a flagon of new-drawn ale, and the wooden platters and cups they needed to eat.[1]


Targon was a Quenya word that meant 'Royal Stone'.[2]
