Herugrim as conceived by The Noble Collection

Herugrim was the sword of King Théoden of Rohan, hidden from him for many years by his traitorous councilor Gríma Wormtongue.[1] After being cured by Gandalf, Théoden recovered the sword, and rode with it to the Battle of the Hornburg and the Battle of Pelennor Fields.

Herugrim means "Fierce in War" in Rohirric, as translated through Old English.
