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 (he was but 42 and his son 16). His son Eorl later tamed the horse, naming her Felaróf, and she would become the first of the great Mearas.[1]

Portrayal in Adaptations
