Roheryn was the horse of Aragorn, brought to him out of the north by the Rangers during the War of the Ring, and said to have been a gift from the lady Arwen Evenstar.[1]

[edit] Etymology

Roheryn is a Númenórean Sindarin name, softened from the pure Sindarin Rocheryn, meaning "Steed of the Lady".[2] The first element in Ro(c)heryn is roch ("horse"), the second heryn ("lady").[3]

[edit] Portrayal in adaptations

2007: The Lord of the Rings Online:

Roheryn can be found by the stables in Rivendell.
