Grimbold was a Rider of Rohan, who dwelt in Grimslade. He fought at both of the Battles of the Fords of Isen. He rode to Minas Tirith, and was slain in the Battle of the Pelennor Fields. He was described in the Song of the Mounds of Mundburg as "doughty".

Portrayal in adaptations

Grimbold is briefly glimpsed twice in Peter Jackson's Return of the King. The first time is as Theoden arrives at Dunharrow and calls out to Grimbold. In this scene he appears as an elderly man in the armour of the guard of Edoras. Later on in the film as the rohirrim arrive at the Pelennor Fields Theoden gives Grimbold orders and tells him to go 'Forth and fear not darkness!' Grimbold rides past now wearing his helmet. In these scenes he was played by Bruce Phillips.
