Húrin of Emyn Arnen was the first recorded Steward of Gondor.

History

Húrin came from the hill region of Emyn Arnen and of noble Númenórean descent. Being a noble of high trust and wisdom, he was chosen to serve under King Minardil as Steward of Gondor.[1] During his service, Húrin laboured greatly on Gondor's behalf in the days of the Great Plague.[3]

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.[1]
