365 Days of Middle-earth ~ Day 236: Erkenbrand

A Lord of Rohan and Master of the Westfold Vale at the time of the War of the Ring, Erkenbrand took control of the Westfold’s forces during the Second Battle of the Fords of Isen after Théodred fell during the First; he organized a retreat and brought back the Westfold Riders to the aid of King Théoden at the Battle of the Hornburg. He remained behind and guarded Rohan during the Battle of the Pelennor Fields; after the War of the Ring, he was named Marshal of the West-Mark by King Éomer.
