Word of the Day: Rohirrim – skilled horsemen who live in the land of Rohan (Horse-land), which is named after them. They are tall and blond, and had a strong connection to their horses, basing their entire culture around them. They had contact with the Elves and Eru but didn’t worship him, valuing the Vala Oromë highly.
Brief History of Rohirrim
Their ancestors, Éothéod (tribe of the Northmen) were middlemen whom the Valar eventually rewarded with island of Númenor. They were descended from the House of Hador, which strengthened a connection they had with Gondor.
They were living in Calenardron, which was renamed Rohan after their horses. It’s usually called The Mark by them.
