General Information
CreatedT.A. 2885

Haudh in Gwanûr was the burial mound of Folcred and Fastred, erected at their death in T.A. 2885.[1]

[edit] History

Folcred and Fastred, the twin sons of King Folcwine of Rohan, had come South to answer the Oath of Eorl. They fought the Haradrim alongside the Gondorians, but were slain on the banks of the Poros.

They were laid to rest near the Crossings of Poros according to the tradition of the Rohirrim, and it is said that all enemies of Gondor were afraid to pass the tomb.[2]

[edit] Etymology

It has been suggested that Haudh in Gwanûr means "mound of the brothers" in Sindarin, consisting of haudh ("mound, grave, tomb") + in (pl. genitive article) + gwanûr.[3] In editions of The Lord of the Rings prior to the 2004 edition, the circumflex (^) was omitted.[4]

[edit] Portrayal in adaptations

1995-8: Middle-earth Collectible Card Game:

Haudh-in-Gwanûr is a site in Harondor, where players face an attack by Undead.
