Marhari, Lord of the Northmen, slain in the Battle of the Plains

Event Type: Genealogical

Age: 3rd Age - The Kings

Year: 1856

Description:

The result of an early defeat in Gondor's Wars with the Wainriders; see that entry for a description of the enemy and an overall timeline of the wars:

The escape of the army of Gondor from total destruction was in part due to the courage and loyalty of the horsemen of the Northmen under Marhari (a descendant of Vidugavia "King of Rhovanion") who acted as rearguard.

As for the Northmen ... others were gathered by Marhwini son of Marhari (who fell in the rearguard action after the Battle of the Plains).
