The Lord of the Rings Helmet Helm of Prince Theodred 1:4 Scale
- Additional information
Son and heir of the King of Rohan, Théodred was as fine a horseman as any of his people, riding with his parents before he could walk. By manhood he was appointed Second Marshall of the Mark. Based at the Hornburg, he and his Éored patrolled the western reaches of Rohan where the River Isen curled a winding course toward the sea. At the shallow Fords of the Isen Théodreds company was set upon by Orcs and the prince himself was cut down. Though senseless and left for dead in the river, Théodred still drew breath and was rescued by his cousin Éomer, who bore him to his father in Edoras.
Yet even in his home the prince was not safe, for while he lay in a swoon a cruel poison was administered by the Kings treacherous servant, Wormtongue. Théodred was buried with honour in his armour, sword upon his breast and etched helm of brass and steel at his feet, in the barrows before the citadel. There he would join his forefathers to sleep beneath the delicate blooms of the simbelmynë until the end of days.
