The King's Company appear to be the inspiration for the Royal Guard of [[Edoras]] in [[Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings]]. They, unlike other soldiers in Rohan in the films have a consistant uniform with a long leaf-mail hauberk, a rich green cloak and a spectacled helm with a horse-hair crest. [[Gamling]], [[Háma]] and [[Grimbold]] in the films all wear this same uniform to emphesise their rank. The Royal Guard notably bear the body of [[Théodred]] from the Golden Hall during his funeral.
