10. Fréaláf Hildeson. In his time Saruman came to Isengard.... The Rohirrim at first profited by his friendship in the days of dearth and weakness that followed.
11. Brytta. He was called by his people Léofa, for he was loved by all; he was openhanded and a help to all the needy. In his time there was war with Orcs that, driven from the North, sought refuges in the White Mountains. When he died it was thought that they had all been hunted out; but it was not so.
12. Walda. ... He was slain with all his companions when they were trapped by Orcs, as they rode by mountain-paths from Dunharrow.
