Eighteenth Ruling Steward of Gondor.
The eighteenth Steward to rule over Gondor, who succeeded his father Ecthelion I. In his time, it seems, Orcs began to trouble Gondor once again, and Egalmoth's armies went to war with this new foe. In III 2710, Egalmoth received a plea for aid from DÃ©or of Rohan, who was himself greatly troubled by the Dunlendings, but the orc-wars kept Egalmoth from sending help. He was succeeded as Steward by his son Beren.
