Éomund slain in an Orc-ambush in the Emyn Muil

Event Type: Genealogical

Age: 3rd Age - The Stewards

Year: 3002

Description:

An event related to the the shadow of Mordor lengthens:
At that time... the shadow of Mordor reached out to Rohan. Orcs began to raid in the eastern regions and slay or steal horses.... Éomund's chief charge [as Marshal of the Mark] lay in the east marches; and he was a great lover of horses and hater of Orcs. If news came of a raid he would often ride against them in hot anger, unwarily and with few men. Thus it came about that he was slain in 3002; for he pursued a small band to the borders of the Emyn Muil, and was there surprised by a strong force that lay in wait in the rocks.
