Synopsis[edit | edit source]

After Gandalf has released Théoden from the enchantment placed upon him by Saruman - and Saruman's lackey Gríma Wormtongue has been banished from Edoras - the king learns that his son Théodred has died. He leads the people of Edoras, along with Gandalf and the members of the Fellowship, in a funeral procession outside the walls of the city. As Théodred body is lowered into its burial mound, Éowyn performs a lament in Rohanese.
