During his reign Rohan was still recovering from the war with the Dunlendings, and hostilities remained at the western borders. Brytta continued his father's habits of helping those in need, earning him the name Léofa.
Asides from the troubles with the Dunlendings his rule saw a new trouble, as the War of the Dwarves and Orcs caused great numbers of Orcs to flee from the Misty Mountains, trying to make a home in the White Mountains south of Rohan. Brytta fought off these Orcs, and when he died it was believed Rohan was free of Orcs.
He ruled for 44 years, and was succeeded by his son Walda at his death in 2842.
Brytta means "distributor" in Old English, having sometimes the meaning "prince". His nickname Léofa means "beloved".
