Portrayal in adaptationsEdit
Éothain and his sister are sent on a horse by their mother Morwen to alert Théoden that the Wild Men are gallivanting through Rohan, burning villages. Éothain and Freda arrive shortly after Théodred's funeral, and Éothain was seen fainting, falling from the horse. The siblings are kept in Edoras until they arrive Helm's Deep shortly after the Warg attack and are reunited with their mother.
In the books, the older Éothain was a rider in Eomer's Eored and apparently acted as Eomer's second-in-command. He scoffs at the idea of Halflings even existing, and openly speaks out - twice - against the three hunters (Aragorn, Legolas, and Gimli) being given horses. It is not known if he was at the battles of Helm's Deep or the Battle of the Pelennor Fields.
