Théoden -- Mighty King of Rohan

I'm proud to pay tribute to a great hero of the Lord of the Rings saga, Théoden, son of Thengel, 17th King of Rohan. He was a commander at both of the great battles of the Trilogy, Helm's Deep and Pelennor Fields. He was slain battling the Lord of the Nazgul on the Pelennor Fields outside Minas Tirith. He was succeeded as King by his nephew, Éomer, who began the third line of Rohan kings.

My Favorite Quotes:

"That is a fair lord and a great captain of men. If Gondor has such men still in these days of fading, great must have been its glory in the days of its rising."
― Legolas speaking of Prince Imrahil, The Return of the King, The Last Debate

The following is out-of-universe, but it applies to an all-war-all-the-time guy like me:

"Wars come and go, but my soldiers stay eternal."
― Tupac Shakur

Being a middle-aged African-American man gives me a little different viewpoint on the Tolkien universe. It's certainly Eurocentric, but its also well-designed and highly entertaining. It should be remembered that Tolkien was a product of his times, which thought that the world revolved around Western Europe. So I don't give a lot of credence to this 'Tolkien was racist' nonsense. I am a veteran of a couple of other Wiki sites, like Wikipedia Project: Middle Earth and Memory Alpha. I joined Tolkien Gateway to try to make a major contribution and get involved. I try to raise the level of expertise and professionalism on TG, and I tend to concentrate on articles involving conflicts from the First and Second Ages. It's been my privilege to to re-ignite the Featured Article process here on TG, and to drive the first one through to FA status, Aragorn II.
