Théoden was the main child of Thengel, and moved toward becoming lord after the demise of his dad in TA 2980. Théoden spoke Sindarin and Westron more frequently than Rohirric, because of the impact of his dad, and spent a piece of his childhood experiencing childhood in the mountain vales of Gondor, his mom’s country.
His sister Théodwyn lived with him in Edoras, and after she and her better half both kicked the bucket he embraced her youngsters Éomer and Éowyn as his own. He had a child Théodred, whose mother Elfhild kicked the bucket in labor.
When of the War of the Ring, Théoden had been ruler for about 40 years, and was getting to be old and tired. He was progressively deluded by his central counselor Gríma (or Wormtongue as most others in the Mark called him), who was covertly in the utilization of Saruman the White. Gríma may even have been harming Théoden. In the most recent years before the War of the Ring, Théoden let his standard sneak out of his hands, and Gríma picked up an undeniably huge hold over him. Rohan was harried again by Orcs and Dunlendings just as the new battling Uruk-hai, who worked under the desire of Saruman, administering from Isengard.
At the point when Théoden’s child Théodred was mortally injured at a fight at the Fords of Isen in encounter with the Orcs of Saruman, his nephew Éomer turned into his beneficiary. Éomer dropped out of support with Wormtongue and was in the long run exiled from Rohan.
At the point when Gandalf the White, Aragorn, Legolas and Gimli showed up before him, Théoden at first censured Gandalf’s recommendation to oppose Saruman, however in the wake of being discharged from the impacts of Gríma, he instructed Hama to discharge his nephew and present to him his sword, and drove the Riders of Rohan into fight against Saruman yet having discovered that Saruman’s powers had gotten through Rohan’s external safeguards.
Théoden, under exhortation from Gandalf, withdrew and battled against Saruman’s swarms at the Battle of Helm’s Deep. After this, he wound up known as Théoden Ednew, the Renewed, on the grounds that he had lost the burden of Saruman.
Prior to the fight, Théoden had made a most loved of Merry, and communicated incredible enthusiasm for hearing progressively about The Shire, particularly Hobbits legend encompassing funnel weed. He drove the Rohirrim to the guide of Gondor at the Battle of the Pelennor Fields valiantly charging the armies of Sauron, where he won incredible brilliance by overcoming “The Black Serpent,” a chieftain of the Southrons, in single combat.

“So much death! What can med do against such reckless hate?”
“I am happy for you. He is an honorable man.”
“He leaves because he must.”
“Ride now!… Ride now!… Ride! Ride to ruin and the world’s ending!”
“I know your face… Eowyn. My eyes darken.”
“Where now are the horse and the rider? Where is the horn that was blowing?
Where is the helm and the hauberk, and the bright hair flowing?
Where is the harp on the harpstring, and the red fire glowing?
Where is the spring and the harvest and the tall corn growing?
They have passed like rain on the mountain, like a wind in the meadow;
The days have gone down in the West behind the hills into shadow.
Who shall gather the smoke of the deadwood burning,
Or behold the flowing years from the Sea returning?”
“Let this be the hour when we draw swords together. Fell deeds awake. Now for wrath, now for ruin, and the red dawn. Forth, Eorlingas!”
“The woman turned and went slowly into the house. As she passed the doors she turned and looked back. Grave and thoughtful was her glance, as she looked on the king with cool pity in here eyes. Very fair was her face, and her long hair was like a river of gold. Slender and tall she was in her white robe girt with silver; but strong she seemed and stern as steel, a daughter of kings.”
“After ripping through The Hobbit, I read The Lord of the Rings, and the darkness of that story enveloped me in a way that is impossible to explain. I was THERE, in a very real sense. The fear was palpable in the presence of the black-cloaked Ringwraiths, and I could taste the sulfurous fumes of Mt. Doom. I could smell the sweat of horses and hot leather and hear the clash of battle as I rode with the Rohan on the fields of the Pelennor. I bled and died with the sun-king, Theoden. I rose again with Eowyn’s defiance of the Witch King. I soared with the Eagles as they swept the broken and bloody body of Frodo and his companion Samwise the Brave from the smoking crags of the fiery mountain. There has never been such a story, and I don’t think there ever shall be again.”
“Slowly the lights of the torches in front of Merry flicked and went out, and he was walking in a darkness; and he thought: ‘This is a tunnel leading to a tomb; there we shall stay forever.’ But suddenly into his dream there fell a living voice.
‘Well, Merry! Thank goodness I have found you!’
He looked up and the mist before his eyes cleared a little. There was Pippin! They were face to face in a narrow lane, but for themselves it was empty. He rubbed his eyes.
‘Where is the king?’ He said. ‘And Eowyn?’ Then he stumbled and sat down on a doorstep and began to weep again.
‘They must have gone up into the Citadel,’ said Pippin. ‘I think you must have fallen asleep on your feet and taken the wrong turning. When we found out you were not with them, Gandalf sent me to look for you. Poor old Merry! How glad I am to see you again! But you are worn out, and I won’t bother you with any talk. But tell me, are you hurt, or wounded?’
‘No,’ said Merry. ‘Well, no, I don’t think so. But I can’t use my right arm, Pippin, not since I stabbed him. And my sword burned away like a piece of wood.’
Pippin’s face was anxious. ‘Well, you had better come with me as quick as you can,’ he said. ‘I wish I could carry you. You aren’t fit to walk any further. They shouldn’t have let you walk at all; but you must forgive them. So many dreadful things have happened in the City, Merry, that one poor hobbit coming in from battle is easily overlooked.’
‘It’s not always a misfortune being overlooked,’ said Merry. ‘I was overlooked just now by—no, no, I can’t speak of it. Help me, Pippin! It’s all going dark again, and my arm is so cold.’
‘Lean on me, Merry lad!” said Pippin. ‘Come now. Foot by foot. It’s not far.’
‘Are you going to bury me?’ said Merry.
‘No, indeed!’ said Pippin, trying to sound cheerful, though his heart was wrung with fear and pity. ‘No, we are going to the Houses of Healing.”
