Boromir: "Is it not a strange fate that we should suffer so much fear and doubt for so small a thing? So small a thing!"
- J. R. R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring II:10

Baisheûin (Language and meaning unknown, but possibly a tongue of Ulgathic-kind) was an Easterling Lord and Master of the city of Tset-Habaor during the War of the Ring. His rise is mysterious, but depending on when the city was conquered by the priests of Sauron (likely around the time of the reconstruction of Barad-dûr) he may have been a puppet, implemented by the Priests of the Sauronic Empire and assigned only to provide his warriors and servants to the armies of the Dark Lord. It is possible, and even likely, that he participated in the Siege of Gondor, and perished in the Battle of Pelennor. Whether he had any descendants, or even if his realm persisted into the Fourth Age, is completely unknown.


Speculations

Baisheûin may have been a member of the Order of Dragon-Knights.
