[The] King's health began to fail. This occurred early in the year 3014, when Théoden was sixty-six; his malady may thus have been due to natural causes, though the Rohirrim commonly lived till near or beyond their eightieth year. But it may well have been induced or increased by subtle poisons, administered by Gríma.

Théodred and Éomer... did all that they could to thwart the influence over him that Gríma gained when the King's health began to fail.
