Description:

Walda, son of Brytta (also known as Léofa), was the 12th King of Rohan:
2780-28511

The Return of the King, LoTR Appendix A, Annals of the Kings and Rulers: The House of Eorl: The Kings of the Mark

The Rohirrim were grievously reduced [before Walda's time] by war and dearth and loss of cattle and horses; and it was well that no great danger threatened them again for many years, for it was not until the time of King Folcwine [2864-2903] that they recovered their former strength.

The Return of the King, LoTR Appendix A, Annals of the Kings and Rulers: The House of Eorl

It was in the days of Beregond that the War of the Dwarves and Orcs was fought in the Misty Mountains (2793-9), of which only rumour came south, until the Orcs fleeing from Nanduhirion attempted to cross Rohan and establish themselves in the White Mountains. There was fighting for many years in the dales before that danger was ended.

The Return of the King, LoTR Appendix A, Annals of the Kings and Rulers: Gondor and the Heirs of Anárion: The Stewards

2800-64
Orcs from the North trouble Rohan [after the War of the Dwarves and Orcs]. King Walda slain by them (28611).

Notes
1   Though the Tale of Years (Appendix B) gives Walda's death date as 2861, it is listed as 2851 in Appendix A, with enough detail to suggest that 2851 is more likely correct.
