Born in TA 2870 Fengel was the youngest child and only surviving son of Folcwine. In TA 2885 when Fengel was fifteen his elder brothers Folcred and Fastred, were killed during the Battle of the Crossings of Poros. With the deaths of his older brothers, Fengel automatically became heir to the Kingship of Rohan and Lordship of the Riddermark.
Eighteen years later, in TA 2903 King Folcwine died having reigned for thirty-nine years, and Fengel succeeded him becoming the fifteenth King of Rohan at the age of thirty-three. Fengel's rule was both long and troubled, the successes and failures of Fengel's rule were overshadowed by the defects in his character and temperament.
Fengel's rule was characterized by recurring conflicts with his family and military commanders that stemmed from his gluttonous and avaricious nature. His son Thengel left Rohan because of disagreements with his father, and lived with his wife's family in Gondor instead of remaining in Rohan.
After a rule of fifty years Fengel died in TA 2953 at the age of eighty-three and Thengel reluctantly returned to Rohan.
