Objective 2

  • Listen to Léothred's tale
Léothred says, "For days Eorl hunted the mearh, bow at the ready. His friends always close behind."
Eorl says, "I will avenge you, father."
Eorl shouts, "It has been days, but I will avenge you."
Eorl's Friend shouts, "Eorl, are you going to kill the mearh?!"
Eorl's Friend shouts, "Please Eorl, let us return home."
Eorl shouts, "There you are...."
Léothred says, "When he got within shooting range, his anger cooled at the sight of the steed's beauty."
Léothred says, "Eorl stood up and called out in a loud voice."
Eorl says, "Come hither, Mansbane, and get a new name!"
Léothred says, "The horse heard him, and to the wonder of those who watched, it looked toward him, and seemed to know him."
Léothred says, "The mearh came to stand before him."
Léothred says, "Rather than seeking to force the beast to his will, Eorl simply held out his hand and let it bow its head to touch him."

Objective 3

Objective 4

  • Listen to Léothred's tale
Eorl says, "Felaróf I name you."
Léothred says, "The name meant strongest in his tongue."
Eorl says, "You loved your freedom, and I do not blame you for that."
Eorl says, "But now you owe me a great weregild, and you shall surrender your freedom to me until your life's end."
Léothred says, "Then Eorl mounted him, and Felaróf submitted."
Léothred says, "Eorl rode him home without bit or bridle; and he rode him in like fashion ever after."
Léothred says, "The Éothéd marvelled at the sight, and spoke of Eorl as being worthy of a crown, but he demurred."
Léothred: 'And that is the end of Eorl's tale.'
