History

Théodred held the title of Second Marshal of the Mark, and was slain in the First Battle of the Fords of Isen defending the islet in the middle of the ford. With no siblings, this made his cousin, Éomer, heir to the throne of Rohan.

Etymology

Théodred's name is probably taken from the Anglo-Saxon words þēod ("folk", "people", "nation") and rǣd ("counsel").[1]

Portrayal in Adaptations

2002: The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers:

The death of Théodred is a major event early in the movie, whereas, in the book, it has all happened by the time the Three Hunters come to Rohan. He is portrayed younger than he was in the book. Théodred was played by Paris Howe Strewe.
