The people of Rohan were known to outsiders as the flaxen-haired Rohirrim, or Horse-lords, in reference to the close affinity they enjoyed with their horses. Indeed, there were no finer riders among all the tribes of Men. The Eorlingas, they named themselves, as followers of the Line of Eorl, who founded the kingdom of Rohan.
A proud people, they lived mostly in small settlements scattered across the plains of The Mark, as Rohan was also known. The greatest of which was Edoras, where King Théoden dwelt in the last days of the Third Age. During the War of the Ring, Théoden led the Rohirrim to Helm’s Deep when they were betrayed by Saruman the White, and later lead a great host of Riders to the aid of Gondor where they helped save the city of Minas Tirith. The Rohirrim resisted Sauron, fighting alongside their Gondorian allies at the Black Gate, and affirmed their alliance in the years after through the marriage of the Lady Éowyn of Rohan to Faramir, Steward of Gondor.
