365 Days of Middle-earh ~ Day 172: Guthláf

Guthláf (Roh. ‘Survivor of the battle’) was a Man of Rohan; he was the Herald and banner bearer for King Théoden, and rode with him to aid Minas Tirith in the Battle of the Pelennor Fields. He was slain defending the King during the battle, the banner in his hand. His name was later mentioned in the Song of the Mounds of Mundburg.
