365 Days of Middle-earth ~ Day 165: Variags

The Variags were a race of Men dwelling in Khand, south-east of Mordor. They first appeared in TA 1944, fighting alongside the Wainriders. Where Khand produced horses for Mordor, it seems probable that the Variags could have been horsemen. Little else is known about them, save that they allied themselves with Sauron during the War of the Ring and fought in the Battle of the Pelennor Fields (TA 3019).
