Eorl (Third Age 2485 – 2545, aged 60 years), known as Eorl the Young, was the son of Léod of the Éothéod, and founder of Rohan. In Third Age 2510, when Gondor was assailed beyond hope, they sent north to Eorl for aid, and he came south in force to rout the enemies of the South-kingdom. As reward, Steward Cirion granted him and his people the land of Calenardhon to dwell in.
