Physical Description

Gárulf was a Man of Rohan during the War of the Ring.


Gárulf was a rider in the Éored of Éomer, Third Marshal of the Riddermark. He was killed by Uruk-hai under the eaves of Fangorn Forest when Éomer and his men attacked and slaughtered the Uruks. His horse Hasufel was given to Aragorn by Éomer when they first met in the Wold.[1]


Gárulf is Old English for "spear-wolf". It was a name of a jutish warrior in the Finnsburg Fragment.
