'''Haleth''' was the oldest child of [[Helm Hammerhand]] and brother of [[Háma son of Helm|Háma]]. Haleth tried to defend [[Edoras]] from the [[Dunlendings]] who had invaded in 2758, but he was killed at the doors of [[Meduseld]] the last of the defenders, and [[Wulf]] son of [[Freca]] of [[Dunland]] sat on the throne and called himself king.  Until not long after the [[Long Winter]], Fréalaf cousin of Helm, came out of the refuge of [[Dunharrow]] with a small "desperate" company of men, and came upon Edoras suddenly. Surprising Wulf  in Meduseld, Fréaláf himself killed him, avenging his cousin.
