Revision as of 05:17, 28 July 2007 by Dwarf Lord (Talk | contribs)

The Wold was the northernmost and least populated part of Rohan, lying between Fangorn Forest and the River Anduin, and bounded to the north by the River Limlight.

The main inhabitance were nomadic Men of Rohan who used the land to graze cattle.

King Eorl of the Rohirrim was killed in battle in The Wold.

During the War of the Ring, the third assault wave by Dol Guldur on Lorien was driven into 'the Wold, where the Ents from Fangorn Forest met them and destroyed the them.
