if you have been following me for a while then you know I like to obsess about the House of Eorl (it is my life’s purpose)
today’s obsession is the clothing of the male members of said House as shown in the movies by Peter Jackson and co.
and I’d like to show you these fine specimen, which are of course Marshal Éomer and Prince Théodred:
look at this bamf
now colours of their armours are obviously different, but aren’t those devices about the chest plate very very similar to each other? and their overall design is pretty much the same. now I wonder if this is some brothers-in-arms thing or maybe a statement on their royal blood?
now I’d like to direct your attention to the devices at théodred’s collar:
notice how éomer doesn’t have any?
however, there is one gentleman who does:
he is, of course, théodred’s dad and the king of rohan.
here’s one with armour:
but guess what appears on Éomer’s neck when he becomes king?
that’s right, ladies and gentlemen: fancy neck decorations. Conclusion: in Rohan, the closer to the throne you are the more fabulous your neckline is.
