Eorl the Young

Eorl the Young is a fictional character from J. R. R. Tolkien's universe of Middle-earth, lord of the Éothéod[?] (2501 TA-2510 TA) and King of Rohan (2510 TA-2545 TA).

Eorl was ruler of the Northmen tribe of the Éothéod, who dwelt between the Gladden[?] and the Carrock rivers.

The most reknowned fact in his reign was his unexpected arrival in the perilous Battle of the Field of Celebrant[?] to the aid of Gondor.

He may be recognized as the true victor of this battle and was granted lands in Calenardhon[?] by Cirion[?], Steward of Gondor[?]. He led the migration of his people to these great pastures and there he became the first King of Rohan. He than swore the Oath of Eorl[?] to Cirion.

He was called the Young because at the start of his reign he was in his youth and retained it throughout his reign.

The Rohirrim[?] call themselves the Eorlingas, the Sons of Eorl.

He died in battle in the Wold against the Easterlings.
