Uvatha the Ringwraith. In T.A. 1940, he laid claim to the throne of Khand, using the threat of an Igath (Wainrider) invasion to unite the tribes. He later forged a pact with the Wainriders, permitting them free passage through his realm. The Variags allied with the Igath and the Haradrim in hope of crushing Gondor, but their plans were dashed by the brilliant generalship of Earnil II at the Battle of the Crossings of Poros (T.A. 1944). Ovatha died in the battle after having ruled less than four years.
