Little is known about Khand or its people, but it appears to have been much like Rohan; the Variags were a people of riders.
Khand was under the influence of Mordor and supplied it with horses, and twice came into the history of Gondor: first in T.A. 1944 when the Variags together with the Wainriders attacked Gondor, and later during the War of the Ring.
The meaning of Khand is unknown, probably it was a word in the language of the inhabitants of that region.[source?]
