[edit] History

An outstanding warrior, Déorwine and six of his knights were slain at the Battle of the Pelennor Fields.[1]

[edit] Etymology

The name Déorwine probably means "brave-friend" in Old English, consisting of dēor ("brave, bold (as a wild beast)" + wine ("friend").[2]

Déorwine can be encountered in Edoras, but currently plays no role in the storyline.
