Description

Éomer, son of Éomund, is the current Third Marshall of the Riddermark. The nephew of King Théoden, he is second in line for the throne of Rohan, behind his cousin Théodred. As such, he also lives under the shadow of Wyrgende's curse.

His parents are Éomund of Eastfold and Théodwyn, the sister of King Théoden. While still a young man of just twenty-six, Éomer the King's nephew was made Third Marshal of the Riddermark, and took command of the Riders of Eastfold. The days of his youth were harsh ones for Rohan; its people were imperilled by Orcs out of the north, while a certain Gríma son of Gálmód, later found to be a spy of Saruman, gained influence over the King.

Éomer is still just twenty-eight years old. He will rule the Rohirrim for another sixty-five years, through which he maintains a great friendship with Gondor. Such was the plenty and peace of his reign that he will be given the surname Éadig, 'Blessed'. He will later wed Lothíriel of Dol Amroth, and will eventually be succeeded by his son Elfwine.[1]
