365 Days of Middle-earth ~ Day 234: Háma

Háma, son of Helm Hammerhand, was a Man of Rohan. With his father and many of the King’s followers, he was besieged in the Hornburg in the winter of TA 2758-59. In the new year, he led a group of desperate Men but was lost in the snow. His father died not long afterward.

Háma was also the name of the Captain of King Théoden’s guard and the door ward of Meduseld; he fell defending the Hornburg in TA 3019 and was buried in a separate mound.
