Talk:Lord of the Éothéod

From Tolkien Gateway

Now that I think on it, is the Lord of the Eotheod an actual, capitalized title by Tolkien, or another fan invention? I, again, couldn't find a reference to it in any of the books.IvarTheBoneless 15:55, 23 February 2022 (UTC)

I already thought when you asked your previous questions that it would be helpful if you would indicate which books that were written by J.R.R. Tolkien you checked before you asked your questions and which books you did not check, because you did not have access to them. Do you not have access to the book Unfinished Tales of Númenor and Middle-earth? The answer is very easy to find if you have access to UT. The title Lord of the Éothéod (with capital L) is used several times in the chapter Cirion and Eorl and the Friendship of Gondor and Rohan in the book Unfinished Tales of Númenor and Middle-earth.[1][2][3] --Akhorahil 16:45, 23 February 2022 (UTC)
I have Unfinished Tales, but it has been some time since I've read the book from cover to cover - I probably should've looked closer.IvarTheBoneless 17:56, 23 February 2022 (UTC)
