When it became clear that the raiders were coming from near Isengard, in T.A. 2710 King Déor led an expedition to the north. He found and defeated a host of Dunlendings, but discovered that Isengard was held by hostile forces. Secure in the fortress they could not be dislodged and Egalmoth could not send help. Instead Déor kept a strong force of riders in the north of the Westfold.
Déor's reign lasted nineteen years. He was succeeded as King by his son, Gram.
Déor is an Old English word for "wild animal" ("deer") and also means "brave, bold".
