What is the Rohan theme called?
Why did Rohan go to Helms Deep?
History. Helm’s Deep was first known to be settled by the Men of Gondor, who constructed the Hornburg during the Second Age. When Calenardhon was given by Gondor to the Éothéod during the rule of Eorl the Young, it became a stronghold of the Rohirrim.
Who owned Helms Deep?
The name Rohirrim was mostly used by outsiders: the name they had for themselves was Eorlingas, after their king Eorl the Young who had first brought them to Rohan. The terms Riders of Rohan and Riders of the Mark are commonly used and refer specifically to their mounted soldiers.
Rohan and Gondor Despite this, many academics link Rohan to one of the most powerful kingdoms of Anglo-Saxon England – Mercia, which was based in the Midlands where Tolkien spent much of his youth. Some also say the riders’ names are rooted in the Mercian dialect.
