365 Days of Middle-earth ~ Day 184: Brytta

Brytta was the eleventh King of Rohan from TA 2798-2842. His people called him Léofa (Roh. ‘beloved’) as a result of his generosity and willingness to help those in need. During his reign, many of the Orcs from the Misty Mountains had been fleeing south, attempting to settle in the White Mountains. Brytta hunted them, and it was believed that by his death, the Mark had been cleared of Orcs. After a forty-four year reign, he was succeeded by his son, Walda.
