The Rohirrim - The Rohirrim were horse people from the land of Rohan, fiercely independent and conservative. Their horses were a very important part of
their everyday lives, and their entire culture was thus based around them. They descend from the Éothéod, a race of Men who lived in the vales of the Great River Anduin, but then removed to Calenardhon, which was granted them in perpetuity by the Ruling Steward of Gondor, Cirion. As a result, they were lifelong allies of Gondor, bound by the Oath of Eorl. Rohirrim themselves usually refer to Rohan not as “Rohan”, but as “The Mark”. After the fall of Théoden and the end of the War of the Ring, Éomer Éadig became King of Rohan, ruling over the Rohirrim until his death in Year 63 of the Fourth Age.
