Haleth was the oldest child of Helm Hammerhand and brother of Háma.

History[edit]

Haleth tried to defend Edoras from the Dunlendings who had invaded in T.A. 2758, but he was killed at the doors of Meduseld, the last of its defenders. Wulf son of Freca usurped the throne while Helm and Háma fled to Helm's Deep.[1]

Etymology[edit]

Haleth in Old English means "warrior". Not to be confused with Mannish Haleth.
