Húrin of Emyn Arnen
|Position||Steward of Gondor|
|Death||Mid-Third Age |
|House||Founded the House of Húrin|
Húrin was a man of noble Númenórean descent. Being a noble of high trust and wisdom, he was chosen to serve under King Minardil as Steward of Gondor. During his service, Húrin laboured greatly on the ordering of Gondor in the days of the Great Plague.
Minardil's heirs opted to select their own Stewards not from any noble Gondorians, but from Húrin's sons and descendants; thus Stewardship was connected to the House of Húrin, and after some generations it became hereditary.
