History

Léod was a great horseman and during his rule he captured a white foal that was wild and proud. When the horse was grown Léod tried to break her, but instead was thrown off and hit his head on a rock and died. His son Eorl later tamed the horse, naming her Felaróf, and she would become the first of the great Mearas.[1]

Portrayal in Adaptations
