Turambar's defeat of the Easterlings was a battle or perhaps a series of battles in which King Turambar decisively defeated the Easterling invaders.


After the death of his father, Turambar became King and moved quickly against the Easterlings who had slain his father and invaded his peoples lands. Gondor and the Easterling armies clashed somewhere perhaps in north-eastern Gondor and Gondor emerged victorious.[1][2]


After the victory, the armies of Gondor moved eastward into Rhûn and proceeded to conquer the area which would later become part of Gondor.[1][3]
