History[edit | edit source]
He served under Grimbold in the Battles of the Fords of Isen. Grimbold placed all the riders for whom horses were available under the command of Dúnhere to cover the retreat of his forces to the south in the night after the Second Battle of the Fords of Isen.
Dúnhere did not accompany Gandalf and Erkenbrand to the Battle of the Hornburg, but went to Edoras instead. Gandalf counselled him and the other captains to assemble the riders of Rohan in Harrowdale and to await King Théoden there, rather than in the open fields around Edoras, and to light as few fires as possible. Several days later, Théoden and the rest of the riders mustered there for the ride to Minas Tirith.
