//Full article: [[Arandur]]//
Steward (//Arandur//) is the traditional title of a chief counsellor to one of the Kings of Gondor. Although initially the position was largely an
honorary one, over time it grew in importance until its holder became one of the most powerful men of the kingdom. The office of //Arandur// first came into existence during the reign of King Rómendacil I. After the Stewardship of **Húrin of Emyn Arnen** the office was filled solely by his heirs.

====THE KING (""<font face="Tengwar Eldamar" size="4">1E7Y2^6</font>"")====
//Full article: [[Tarondor Minastir, king Tarondor]]//
Minastir, son of Minastan, was born in III 1577. He succeeded his uncle, King Telemnar, who died in the Great Plague of III 1636. He came to the throne when he was still relatively young and was crowned as King Tarondor. War and plague tortured his country, and Tarondor strove to rebuild it and its power. The most significant event in his reign was the removal of the capital from Osgiliath to Minas Anor, where he also replanted the White Tree after the previous tree had died in the plague.
====THE STEWARD====
Steward (//Arandur//) is the traditional title of a chief counsellor to one of the Kings of Gondor. Although initially the position was largely an honorary one, over time it grew in importance until its holder became one of the most powerful men of the kingdom. The office of //Arandur// first came into existence during the reign of King Rómendacil I. After the Stewardship of **Húrin of Emyn Arnen** the office was filled solely by his heirs. Arandur presides over King's Government and its many branches. He has his own guard (The Tower Guard).
Dior Húrinion was made Steward by late King Telemnar. He was instrumental in the ascension of King Tarondor and his education into kingship. He is married with lady Galenil Serni, with four children: Ecthelion (1578-1755), Egalmoth (1582-1748), Eirien and Emelin.

Formerly married in his youth with lady Emeldir (died 1635 in Plague) with one son, Mindacil. Vinyaran is still aching for his one-time lover Melabrian, the Queen Mother. He was captured by rebel forces after the disaster at the Battle of [[GobelAncalimon Gobel Ancalimon]] (1652) and returned to Gondor after the treaty of Barad Morvegil. He was reinstated as the Captain of the Hosts in 1660. He has twice declined the winged crown.

{{image url="images/GondorTOC.png" link="http://lindefirion.net/charts/GondorTOC1665.png"}}>>====THE MILITARY====
Prince of Orthand, former marshal of Gondor (//Herdir roecbhin Aran//), former Captain of the Hosts, former commander of the royal field army group in the East. Venerable and stiff-necked man, eldest in the house of Anárion, plagued by arthritis and sciatica, and one of the few relatives Tarondor thought he can really trust.

He was selected as the figurehead of the 1664-1665 rebellion and self-styled "King of Enedwaith".
General and Master of infantry (//Herdir vagorim Aran//), Commander of the royal field army group in Ithilien. Lavish monetary support has secured the post of Field army commander to the house Telengaur, prominent Ithilien aristocratic family. He was chosen more because of his connections than his actual skills, but during the [[ThirdCorsairWar Fifteen Year's War]] he emerged as one of the most loyal military leaders in Gondor.
//Autherdir//, commander of the //eothraim//. Highest of the non-dúnedain military leaders. Sigisfrith dresses and acts like a gondorian, but his blond hair, moustache and crisp manners betray him as a northman. Eldacar's successors have relied on all-northman bodyguard in stead of traditional aristocratic household. He defeated [[Sangahyandion]] twice in battles of Ithilduin and Methir; in 1664 he rebelled against Tarondor and was later executed.

To the resentment of the aristocratic league, Eldacar's successors have maintained a meritocratic system of promotion in the military establishment, leading to a high proportion of men of humble origin.

===THE MILITARY ESTABLISHMENT (late 1600s)===
Former marshal of Gondor (//Herdir roecbhin Aran//), former Captain of the Hosts and commander of the royal field army group in the East. Venerable and stiff-necked man, eldest in the house of Anárion, plagued by arthritis and sciatica, and one of the few relatives Tarondor thought he can really trust. His position as the supreme commander in the East is important to the royal house. His mother Boromís was granddaugther of king Aldamir. Belatar's wife and six children died in the Plague. He was selected as the figurehead of the 1664-1665 rebellion.
General and Master of infantry (//Herdir vagorim Aran//), Commander of the royal field army group in Ithilien. Lavish monetary support has secured the post of Field army commander to the house Telengaur, prominent Ithilien aristocratic family. He was chosen more because of his connections than his actual skills, but during the [[ThirdCorsairWar Fifteen Year's War]] he emerged as one of the most important military leaders in Gondor.
//Autherdir//, commander of the //eothraim// guard. Highest of the non-dúnedain military leaders. Sigisfrith dresses and acts like a gondorian, but his blond hair, moustache and crisp manners betray him as a northman. Eldacar's successors have relied on all-northman bodyguard in stead of traditional aristocratic household. He defeated [[Sangahyandion]] twice in battles of Ithilduin and Methir; in 1664 he rebelled against Tarondor and was later executed.
~Lesser Army Commanders. To the resentment of the aristocratic league, Eldacar's successors have maintained a meritocratic system of promotion in the military establishment, leading to a high proportion of men of humble origin. They - among few Kings relatives - have proved to be more trustworthy than the old aristocratic class, who have tight family ties to Umbar, Harondor and beyond.
- //Rochir// **Ardaric**, captain of the //eothraim// federates. Not only a gondorian officer, but a tribal leader and war-chief as well. Ardaric is one of the chosen kings of northmen, who have pledged their loyalty to the Winged Crown.
- //Condir// **Rúthion**, captain of the Citadel Guard (//Tirrim Aran//). Tall, dark, slim and handsome captain Rúthion is the foremost fencing champion of the realm, as well as Tarondor's childhood friend. His origins are a mystery, but it is said his father was a dispossessed nobleman, victim of Hyarmendacil II's proscriptions.
- //Herdir vagorim// **Húrin Orchaldor**, commander of the Lebennin territorial corps. Orchaldors are one of the noveaux-riches families so patronised by Tarondor. Húrin's father is Seregon Orchaldor.
- //Condir// **Hardang Seldorien**, second in command. Hardang hails from a super-rich mercantile family in Linhir. His uncle, Forlong, has dominated the city council for almost two decades.
- //Herdir vagorim// **Imrakhôr Tarma**, commander of the Harondor territorial corps. Professional soldier, immigrant noble from Arthedain.
- //Condir// **Habadan Naþron** (of Eithel Thurin), second in command. Professional soldier, son of a cabbage farmer.
- //Rochir// **Bregor Badhor** (of Athrad Poros), commander of the variag and haruze auxiliaries in South Ithilien. Professional soldier of very mixed descent. His father was a lay judge in small harondorian town.
- //Autherdir// **Ulraed Curimardin** (of Hyarpendë), commander of the Pelargir Garrison. Control of the police, fire brigade and garrison in Pelargir has been give to a senior member of the very influential and aristocratic Curimardins, who got 5 seats in the Council of Gondor.
- //Condir// **Isilmo Curimardin**, captain of the Steward's Guard in Minas Anor is also one of the Curimardins.
- //Autherdir// **Hunthor Falmathil** (of Na-Tyliand), commander of the Andrast Garrison. A local nobleman, keen hunter, fisher and outdoorsman.
- //Condir// **Námotur Usulúni**, captain of the royal engineers. He is a relative of steward Dior and a brave and brilliant artillerist who has lost a leg in a catapult mishap. His siege train is based in Athrad Poros and Hyarpendë. It is said that he is one of the few persons besides the King and his Steward who knows the secret of //Naurnen//, the dreaded númenorean fire.
===PROVINCIAL GOVERNMENT===
===ANORIEN (Gwaron: Mindacil)===
- //Gwaron// **Mindacil Vinyarion** (1618-1784). City Prefect of Minas Anor and the Governor of Anórien. Only son of Vinyaran. Tarondor forced him to marry his haradan mistress Daenya so that he could not claim the kingship for himself or his offspring. Mediocre man in both appearance and wit. Two children: Minadir and Lindamel (born 1639). Minadir dreams of a military career; Lindamel is a spoiled tart.
- //Autherdir// **Curmegil Harnastin**, commander of the territorial and reserve corps in Anórien. Elderly knight with a 40-year career in Hyarmendacil's wars in Harad. Wife Acerinza Astirian, six children (Rodhel, Lúthien, Luinna, Lindúviel, Harwain).
- **Tirbelôr Malréd**. Procurator (//Brannon garn//) of Anórien. Probably the richest man in the world. Vainglorious, ill, corrupt. Owns several precious mines; dominates the guild of goldsmiths and has bought most of the votes in the Conclave for himself.
- //Argondhir// **Calimon Ascarnil**, Watcher of the Anor-Stone. Works in close association with Dostir Maldring to obtain information about King's enemies, domestic and abroad. Also a grand master of //Pharâz Lômi// (the “Golden Dawn”), leader of “Tribunal of Arda”.
- //Turmahîr// **Mardil Tinmëgûl**, captain of the Second Company.
===ITHILIEN (Gwaron: Tuan Barandor)===

- //Autherdir// **Andril Bathory**, commander of the Garrison of Minas Ithil. Half-dorwinadan professional soldier, very much revered by his eastern mercenaries but commonly hated in Minas Ithil.
- **Rochir** **Aelfrith**, captain of the Queen's //eothraim// Cavalry Guard.
- **Dorias**, bursar of Ithilien
===LEBENNIN (Gwaron: Seregon Orchaldor)===
- //Gwaron// **Seregon Orchaldor** (1532- ) Prefect of Lebennin in 1635-1660. Married with Galenil Luindol with four children. His cousin was the late condir Túrin Orchaldor, who created the “renaissance court” of Pelargir and started the rebirth of the haven. With his nephews and his cousins son lord Morëinion Eldalóte-Orchaldor (1551- ) they made up a mafia-like collusion that pretty much rules the city.
- //Gwaron// **Raimond Herenion Serni** (1606- ) Prefect of Lebennin 1660- . Married with Elanor Eldalótë-Orchaldor with two children.

Additions:
A //Dúnedain// kingdom founded by Isildur and Anárion, the sons of Elendil, after the Downfall of Númenor. Its sister kingdom was Arnor in the north, which was founded by Elendil himself. Gondor was located to the west of Mordor, on the Bay of Belfalas. Its name means "Land of Stone", from Sindarin gond (stone) + (n)dor (land), most likely given to it because of the Ered Nimrais and other mountain chains in the land. A hypothetical Quenya equivalent was //Ondonórë//. Gondor and Arnor were known as the //Realms of Exile// among Dúnedain.

//Ernil// **Belatar Aldamirion** (1523-1712)
Marshal of Gondor (//Herdir roecbhin Aran//), Commander of the royal Field army group in the East. Venerable and stiff-necked man, eldest in the house of Anárion, plagued by arthritis and sciatica, and one of the few relatives Tarondor can really trust. His position as the supreme commander in the East is important to the royal house. His mother Boromís was granddaugther of king Aldamir. Belatar's wife and six children died in the Plague.
**Callo Telagar**
General and Master of infantry (//Herdir vagorim Aran//), Commander of the royal Field army group in Ithilien. Lavish monetary support has secured the post of Field army commander to the house Telagar, prominent Ithilien aristocratic family. He was chosen more because of his connections and standing than his actual skills as a leader. He is one of the few ithilean lords supporting Tarondor.
**Sigisfrith**
//Autherdir//, commander of the //eothraim// Palatial Guard. Highest of the non-dúnedain military leaders. Sigisfrith dresses and acts like a gondorian, but his blond hair, moustache and crisp manners betray him as a northman. Eldacar's successors have relied on all-northman bodyguard in stead of traditional aristocratic household.
~Lesser Army Commanders. To the resentment of the aristocratic league, Eldacar's successors have maintained a meritocratic system of promotion in the military establishment, leading to a high proportion of men of humble origin. They - among few Kings relatives - have proved to be more trustworthy than the old aristocratic class, who have tight family ties to Umbar, Harondor and beyond.
- //Rochir// **Ardaric**, captain of the //eothraim// federates. Not only a gondorian officer, but a tribal leader and war-chief as well. Ardaric is one of the chosen kings of northmen, who have pledged their loyalty to the Winged Crown.
- //Condir// **Rúthion**, captain of the Citadel Guard (//Tirrim Aran//). Tall, dark, slim and handsome captain Rúthion is the foremost fencing champion of the realm, as well as Tarondor's childhood friend. His origins are a mystery, but it is said his father was a dispossessed Anórien nobleman, victim of Hyarmendacil II's proscriptions.
- //Herdir vagorim// **Húrin Orchaldor**, commander of the Lebennin territorial corps. Orchaldors are one of the noveaux-riches families so patronised by Tarondor. Húrin's father is Seregon Orchaldor.
- //Condir// **Hardang Seldorien**, second in command. Hardang hails from a super-rich mercantile family in Linhir. His father, Forlong, has dominated the city council for almost two decades.
- //Herdir vagorim// **Imrakhôr Tarma**, commander of the Harondor territorial corps. Professional soldier, immigrant noble from Arthedain.
- //Condir// **Habadan Naþron** (of Eithel Thurin), second in command. Professional soldier, son of a cabbage farmer.

- //Autherdir// **Ulraed Curimardin** (of Hyarpendë), commander of the Pelargir Garrison. Control of the police, fire brigade and garrison in Pelargir has been give to a senior member of the very influential and aristocratic Curimardins, who got 5 seats in the Council of Gondor.
- //Condir// **Isilmo Curimardin**, captain of the Steward's Guard in Minas Anor is also one of the Curimardins.
- //Autherdir// **Hunthor Falmathil** (of Na-Tyliand), commander of the Andrast Garrison. A local nobleman, keen hunter, fisher and outdoorsman.
- //Condir// **Námotur Usulúni**, captain of the royal engineers. He is a relative of steward Dior and a brave and brilliant artillerist who has lost a leg in a catapult mishap. His siege train is based in Athrad Poros and Hyarpendë. It is said that he is one of the few persons besides the King and his Steward who knows the secret of //Naurnen//, the dreaded númenorean fire.
- //Gwaron// **Mindacil Vinyarion** (1618-1784). City Prefect of Minas Anor and the Governor of Anórien. Only son of Vinyaran. Tarondor forced him to marry his haradan mistress Daenya so that he could not claim the kingship for himself or his offspring. Mediocre man in both appearance and wit. Two children: Minadir and Lindamel (born 1639). Minadir dreams of a military career; Lindamel is a spoiled tart.
- //Autherdir// **Curmegil Harnastin**, commander of the territorial and reserve corps in Anórien. Elderly knight with a 40-year career in Hyarmendacil's wars in Harad. Wife Acerinza Astirian, six children (Rodhel, Lúthien, Luinna, Lindúviel, Harwain).
- **Tirbelôr Malréd**. Procurator (//Brannon garn//) of Anórien. Probably the richest man in the world. Vainglorious, ill, corrupt. Owns several precious mines; dominates the guild of goldsmiths and has bought most of the votes in the Conclave for himself.

Heren Elenaerion
Captain of the Ships (Berthîr ceiriath), City Prefect of Pelargir. Head of the Admiralty, commander-in-chief of the Navy. Subordinates: Four Lord-Captains (read and flag admirals) of the Fleet, leading the fleets assigned to Anfalas, Linhir and Pelargir, and river flotillas of Ethir Anduin and Gwathló. Governor of Pelargir and superintendent for naval yards. Elenaerion is an eunuch due to a childhood accident. He is of no special lineage; he has managed to rise to his position due to his substantial acumen. Elenaerion has been very efficient in cutting down the rampant crime in Pelargir. He is safe choice to Tarondor, as he cannot start a dynasty of his own (as a few Captains of the Ships have tried to do) nor count to the support of the pelargirean aristocrats because of his lowly pedigree.
