Aldburg (OE. 'Old Fortress') is one of the oldest towns in Rohan, It is recorded it was built by Eorl in the region known as the Folde, some miles to the southeast of Edoras. Though he and his family moved to Edoras early in Rohan's history, Aldburg remained a seat of noblemen. At the time of the War of the Ring, it was the home of king Théoden's nephew Éomer, who was Third Marshal of the Riddermark, and heir of the Kingship of Rohan himself.
