On This Day in Middle-earth

May 8th

Éomer and Éowyn depart for Rohan with the sons of Elrond.

As Lord Aragorn, King of Gondor, passed his new judgements on the peoples of Middle-earth, he reached Éomer last. In this meeting he greeted Éomer and treated him, not as a friend or companion, but as a brother, for through their battles and trials they had forged a strong bond.

And last of all Aragorn greeted Éomer of Rohan, and they embraced, and Aragorn said: “Between us there can be no word of giving or taking, nor of reward; for we are brethren.”

Happy were the days of celebration, but Éomer and Éowyn had to return to Rohan, for there was much to heal and set in order in their homeland. However, they agreed to leave the fallen King Théoden in the tombs of Gondor, for the time being. A fitting resting place for a king of great renown. Both will return, Éomer to take his uncle and return him to rest in peace with his son and fathers, Éowyn will return and stay for she is betrothed to Faramir.

Thank you for your time and remember, renewed shall be blade that was broken.

– The Wandering One
