was the Chief of the King's Riders
during the War of the Ring
An outstanding warrior, Déorwine and six of his knights were slain at the Battle of the Pelennor Fields.
The name Déorwine probably means "brave-friend" in Old English, consisting of dēor ("brave, bold (as a wild beast)" + wine ("friend").
