Boromir is a human character in J. R. R. Tolkien's Middle-earth world, appearing in The Lord of the Rings.

Boromir is the son and heir to Steward Denethor II of Gondor, and older brother to Faramir. He also was Captain of Gondor.

Though it is revealed during the introduction of Boromir that his intentions to use the One Ring for the purposes of power, it is later revealed that his father, Denethor II, had tasked him the quest of bringing the ring back to Minas Tirith before even setting out. Unfortunately, during the ambush at Amon Hen by orcs, after Boromir subsequently tried (and failed) to entice Frodo to journey towards Minas Tirith, he was slain in battle. His repentance for the treachery of wanting the ring was to protect both Merry and Pippin to the death, being finally brought down by arrowfire.


In Peter Jackson's film adaptations of The Lord of the Rings, Boromir is played by the actor Sean Bean.
