365 Days of Middle-earth ~ Day 164: Morwen Steelsheen

Morwen (b. TA 2922 in Lossarnach) was a Dúnadan of southern Gondor who in TA 2943 married Thengel, son of King Fengel of Rohan, in the first recorded union between the Dúnedain and the Rohirrim. Thengel, feuding with his father, had lived in Gondor for most of his life. Here, Morwen bore Thengel three children; among them, his only son, Théoden. When Fengel died in TA 2980, Thengel returned to Rohan to take up the throne; Morwen, known to the Rohirrim as ‘Steelsheen,’ bore him two more children – the last of which being Théodwyn, the mother of Éowyn and Éomer.
