Wídfara was a man of Rohan during the War of the Ring.

History

He followed Théoden to Minas Tirith. His home was in the Wold, the wild grasslands of Rohan's northern border, and in these northern lands he had acquired a special weather-sense. It was he who first reported a change in the wind during the long ride, a change that augured the end of Sauron's looming darkness.[1]

Etymology

Wídfara is Old English for "far, wide traveller".
