Notes on the Lineage of the House of Eorl

Hi Alquawende,

This is a very interesting article. I was always very curious about the people of Rohan so this sheds some light on where and whom the Royal family of Rohan are descended from.

Thank you so much for the kind comments! Tolkien left small clues about the origins of the House of Eorl all over his writings, and I just gathered them together — and also did some hopefully educated speculation.

I appreciate your comment, thank you for leaving it! Wave
