men of middle-earth ♞ house of éorl ♞ headcanon disclaimer
          Théoden was the son of Thengel, and the seventeenth King of Rohan. He had only one child, as his wife Elfhild had died giving birth to their son Théodred. Elfhild had long been Théoden’s companion when he went out hunting, and fighting, and her death left him in great sorrow; though he would marry again, he did not give in to grief, instead devoting his energy and love to raising Théodred. In this he was supported by his youngest sister Théodwyn, whom he held very dear. When Théodwyn and her husband died, Théoden once more remained firm amid his sorrow, taking her children as his own.           Théodred grew into a mighty prince, very close to his cousins Éomer and Éowyn. As the Second Marshal of the Riddermark, he defended Rohan’s borders from the increasing threats of Dunlendings and orcs, enemies stirred up by the wizard Saruman. Théoden fell into ill health, becoming weak in body and mind, but with his treacherous counselor Gríma always at his side there was little Théodred could do to aid his father. Instead he focused on preparations for war, establishing himself at Helm’s Deep.           Warned by his scouts of a mustering of troops at the Gate of Isengard, Théodred purposed to overthrow Saruman’s army before it was fully prepared. He passed over the River Isen and scattered the vanguard, but quickly discovered that he had been lured into an ambush when a greater force of foes rushed forth to assault his riders. Though he attempted to retreat, he was overrun by orcs with specific orders to kill him at all costs, and he was cut down. His allies Grimbold and Elfhelm rushed to his defence, avenging his fall and carrying his body away, but Théodred died in their arms, his last words rallying them to keep the Fords until Éomer came.           Théoden was in no state to mourn the death of his only son, his mind overwhelmed by the spell of Saruman and his body weakened by the poisons of the traitor Gríma. He did nothing when Gríma ordered Éomer imprisoned for disobeying orders, and remained helpless until the arrival of Gandalf the White, who cast out Saruman’s influence and healed him of his ailments. His strength renewed, Théoden took up his sword and restored Éomer as his heir.           Their king renewed, the people of Rohan gave him the name Ednew and rallied to him as he called them to battle. Théoden retreated into Helm’s Deep, where the Battle of the Hornburg was fought. There the Deeping Wall was breached for the first time, but with the aid of Aragorn and Gandalf’s sudden arrival with reinforcements led by Erkenbrand, the battle was won in the end.           He rode then with Gandalf to Isengard and saw Saruman deposed from the order of wizards. Shortly thereafter he accepted the halfling Meriadoc Brandybuck into his service as a squire, and rode to Dunharrow to muster an army. There he was met by Hirgon of Gondor, bearing the Red Arrow and a message begging for Rohan’s aid in the siege of Minas Tirith. Théoden and six thousand riders set out the next morning, fulfilling the Oath of Círion and Éorl. As they traveled they were warned of a host of approaching orcs, but avoided that conflict when Ghân-buri-Ghân, a leader of the Woses, offered to lead them down secret paths through Stonewain Valley.           The Riders of Rohan arrived without any warning, for Hirgon had been slain before delivering the message of coming reinforcements, and joined the Battle of the Pelennor Fields. Théoden fell upon the enemies of Gondor with great vigor, challenging a chieftain of the Haradrim to battle, felling him and the bearer of his standard, which depicted a black serpent upon a scarlet field.           Before Théoden could rejoice in this victory or turn to face other foes, he was attacked by the Lord of the Nazgûl, riding upon a fell beast. His faithful steed, Snowmane, was frightened by the creature and attempted to flee, falling upon Théoden and mortally wounding him. Crushed beneath the weight of his horse, Théoden faced his doom—but swiftly he was avenged, watching in astonishment as his squire Meriadoc and his sister-daughter Éowyn, who had ridden to war in secret against his orders. Together they brought down the Nazgûl and his beast, and when Théoden succumbed to his wounds at last he claimed satisfaction, for he had felled the Black Serpent and seen the end of the Witch-king.           Thus ended the last King of the Second Line. Théoden’s body was removed to the Hallows of Minas Tirith, while Snowmane was buried where they fell. When the War of the Ring was won, Théoden’s sister-son Éomer took his body and returned it to Edoras, where he was buried with the other Kings of the Mark. The bard Gléowine composed a poem in Théoden’s honor, and Éomer was crowned King of Rohan, the first of the Third Line.

men of middle-earth ♞ house of éorl ♞ headcanon disclaimer
        Thengel was the son of Fengel, and the sixteenth King of Rohan. He quarreled often with his father, a greedy and incompetent king, and left Rohan in his youth to serve under Steward Turgon of Gondor. There he met and married Morwen Steelsheen of Lossarnach, a descendant of an offshoot branch of the Princes of Dol Amroth, a proud and noble woman whom he loved greatly.           Morwen bore him five children in all, four daughters and one son. The eldest was Frithild, a gentle woman whose heart remained always in her birthplace of Gondor. Then came Thengel’s heir Théoden, likewise born in Gondor, but raised a prince of Rohan with the understanding of his place in the line of succession.           Shortly before the birth of Thengel and Morwen’s third child, Mereliss, word came to Gondor of Fengel’s death. Reluctantly, Thengel returned to his land of origin and was crowned King of Rohan. Despite his yearning to return to Gondor, Thengel was a wise and firm king, much more respected by his people. During his reign, the wizard Saruman took full control of Isengard and began to fortify it, which troubled Thengel for a reason he could not name.           Then appeared the ranger Thorongil, a mysterious warrior who entered into the king’s service for a time. Thorongil rode at Thengel’s side against any enemies that dared cross into the borders of Rohan, earning the king’s trust and friendship before he heeded the summons of Steward Ecthelion II and went to Gondor.           Thorongil remained in Rohan long enough to see the birth of Shadufled, fourth of Thengel’s children, and with his foresight guided Thengel and Morwen in how best to raise the babe he Saw would chafe against the expectations of a Lady and wish sometimes to be a Lord instead. True to his predictions, Shadufled grew to express both masculine and feminine qualities, and remembering Thorongil’s advice, their parents were able to support them as they discovered themself.           The last of Thengel and Morwen’s children was Théodwyn, fairest of their daughters and kindest of heart. She and her siblings were raised with the customs of Gondor, the land of their mother’s origin and of their father’s heart. Sindarin was the daily tongue of Thengel’s house, along with Westron, and his children used Rohirric only to converse with their friends outside their home.

The story of Arwen & Aragorn
A gift I will give you. For I am the daughter of Elrond. I shall not go with him now when he departs to the Havens for mine is the choice of Lúthien, and as she so I have chosen, both the sweet and the bitter.

men of middle-earth ♞ house of éorl ♞ headcanon disclaimer
          Fengel was the son of Folcwine, and the fifteenth King of Rohan. He was the third of his father’s sons, and became his heir after the death of his elder brothers Folcwine and Fastred in the Battle of the Crossings of Poros. Yet Fengel was never given the same kind of attention as his siblings: his mother doted upon him, but his father ignored him, and his sister Layrun treated him with outright disdain. As a result, Fengel grew up both spoiled and starved for attention, manifesting into an adult greed and love of gold.           As king, Fengel dallied about with many women, neglecting his wife Bledwyn, who bore her fate with her head raised high. Fengel was unloved by his people, but they respected Bledwyn, who took care of most of Rohan’s day-to-day business in her husband’s stead. Bledwyn also bore Folcwine three children, two daughters and a son. The elder daughter, Wilfled, took after her mother and aided her in managing Rohan’s state affairs; the younger, Cwenswith, left Edoras to become a shieldmaiden in her youth. Thengel, Bledwyn’s only son and Fengel’s heir, quarrelled often with his father, and left for Gondor as soon as he was old enough to enter into the service of Steward Turgon.

         Folcwine was the son of Folca the Hunter, and the fourteenth King of Rohan. In his time, the Dunlendings once more overtook the lands between the rivers Adorn and Isen, but with the aid of Steward Túrin of Gondor he was able to drive them out and reclaim the area.           The wife of Folcwine was Cynefled, a gentle woman who bore him four children. The eldest of these were the twins Folcred and Fastred, followed by a daughter, Layrun, and another son, Fengel. Folcred and Fastred were mighty princes who planned to rule jointly as brothers when Folcwine died; they were supported in their vision by their sister Layrun, a sage and wise-woman who commanded much respect among their people. Fengel, the youngest, was more of an afterthought in his childhood, doted upon by his mother but never truly acknowledged by his elder siblings or his father.           When Steward Túrin called upon the Oath of Círion and Éorl, requesting the aid of Rohan to defeat the Haradrim armies invading Gondor, Folcinwe sent many riders to his aid in memory of the support Túrin had given to him against the Dunlendings. This force was led by Folcred and Fastred his heirs, who were tragically both slain in battle. They were laid to rest where they fell, at the Crossings of Poros, and their burial mound became known as the Haudh-in-Gwanûr, the Mound of the Twins.          Upon this tragedy, Folcwine grew and weary, neglecting to properly train his remaining son in the ways of kingship. Layrun, devastated by the loss of her brothers, retreated with a small group of followers into Fangorn Forest, where they became known as wood-witches, feared and respected by those who believed in their powers. Meanwhile, Fengel was raised solely by his mother Cynefled, who spoiled him irreparably.

          Ethelward was the son of Hild, the nephew to Helm Hammerhand, and the tenth King of Rohan, first of the second line. Alongside his mother, he led a surprise raid to retake Edoras from the usurper-king Wulf, and afterward claimed the kingship of Rohan with the support of his cousin Saulwyn, daughter and last remaining family member of Helm. As king, he took the name Fréaláf, “surviving lord,” and worked to free Rohan from its Dunlendish conquerors.           In this he at last had the aid of Gondor, who had been struggling against their own enemies during the Long Winter but were finally free to fulfill the Oath of Círion and Éorl. Fréaláf and his allies drove their enemies back across the rivers Isen and Adorn and laid siege to Isengard until the Dunlendings who had occupied were starved and capitulated, fleeing the fortress.           At Fréaláf’s coronation ceremony, the wizard Saruman suddenly appeared after a long period of absence, offering his support to Rohan, which Fréaláf accepted gladly. At the advice of Fréaláf, Steward Beren of Gondor lent Saruman the keys of Orthanc, giving him leave to dwell in Isengard if he would protect it from another conquest.           Fréaláf was succeeded by his son Brytta, who continued his legacy of sending aid to those in need. This generosity earned him the name Léofa, “beloved,” first coined by his mother Aldwyn, who survived her kingly husband, and later adopted by all the people of Rohan. In addition to rebuilding his kingdom, Brytta defended his borders against the Dunlendings and faced a new threat when orcs invaded the White Mountains after their defeat in the distant War of the Dwarves and Orcs. Brytta fought them off, and when he died it was believed that Rohan was at last free of all intruders.          The wife of Brytta Léofa was Mildgith, a shieldmaiden who fought alongside him to restore Rohan. Mildgith bore her husband a son, Walda, who served in his father’s army fighting off orcs in the White Mountains. When Walda inherited the throne of Rohan, he declared his lands free of enemies, but after only nine years of his reign he discovered this was not true when he was attacked by a last roving band of orcs in the mountains near Dunharrow. Walda and his men were killed, with only Queen Eafled his wife surviving to bear the grievous news back to Edoras.           Walda’s son Folca took the crown and swore to avenge his father. He was renowned as a great hunter, clearing all of Rohan from the scourge of the orcs. This campaign took thirteen years, and when it was over Folca soon grew eager to hunt again. He searched far and wide for a prey worthy of his attentions, discovering it in the form of the monstrous Boar of Everholt. Though his wife Darwise begged him to leave it be, Folca rode out chasing the thrill of another great hunt, but Darwise’s counsel proved true in the end: though he slew the boar in the end, the beast gored him with its tusks, leaving him with mortal wounds. Upon his death, Folca was succeeded by his son Folcwine.

          Hild was the daughter of Gram and the younger sister of Helm. She was a mighty shieldmaiden, riding into battle alongside her brother against the enemies of Rohan; she was also a falconer, and hunted always with a bird of prey at her side. She wed the warrior Wulfstan and bore him a son, Ethelward, who grew into a soldier as great as his parents.           When Rohan was invaded by Dunlendings, Hild and her family fought along Crown Prince Haleth to defend Edoras from their enemies. As the battle turned ill, Haleth ordered his aunt and cousin to retreat with as many folk as they could gather. Though they were loath to abandon Meduseld, Hild and Ethelward obeyed his command, fleeing to Dunharrow. Wulfstan remained by the side of Haleth his prince, and both were slain when Wulf, leader of the Dunlendings, at last broke through into the Golden Hall and usurped the throne.           Hild and Ethelward endured the siege of Dunharrow through the Long Winter, entirely cut off from the other Rohirric refugees led by Helm in Súthburg. Wulf focused his siege upon the Deep, starving out Prince Háma and luring Helm out into the cold to his death, leaving Hild and Ethelward to plot for revenge.           Early in the spring, Hild and her son led a daring surprise raid against the Dunlendings in Edoras. Hild fell in the battle, wounding Wulf with her last blow and giving Ethelward the chance to slay the usurper. As the last remaining heir of the Kings of Rohan, Ethelward leaned upon the support of his cousin Saulwyn to earn the trust of the people, and was soon thereafter crowned King Fréaláf Hildeson, first of the second line of Kings.
