Framsburg[note 1] was the capital of the Éothéod, the ancestors of the Rohirrim, while they lived in the far north by the Grey Mountains between the rivers Greylin and Langwell.[1]

Framsburg was probably founded shortly after the Éothéod arrived in T.A. 1977,[2] during the rule of Frumgar, but it took its name from his son Fram, the famed slayer of the Dragon Scatha.[3]

The city was probably abandoned circa T.A. 2510 when Eorl the Young led the Éothéod south to settle Calenardhon, the land later known as Rohan.[2]

Notes

  1. The name and location of this town first appeared on Pauline Baynes' A Map of Middle-earth (1970).
