Fengel was a greedy and quarrelsome man, and Thengel left Rohan in his youth to live with his mother's family in Gondor. Eventually he met and married Morwen Steelsheen of Lossarnach in 2943, and he lived with her there for a while. Morwen bore him five children in total, including his only son (his second child) Théoden in 2948 and a daughter Théodwyn in T.A. 2963, who would be the mother of Éomer and Éowyn.
After Fengel died in T.A. 2953, Thengel was called upon to return to Rohan, which he reluctantly did. During Thengel's reign, a mysterious Northerner calling himself Thorongil entered his service, and rode with him for some time. Saruman took Isengard for himself and began to fortify it.
