Gúthwinë was the sword that belonged to Éomer.

HistoryEdit

It was borne by him at the Battle of the Hornburg, and presumably at the Battle of the Pelennor Fields and the battle before Morannon.[1]

EtymologyEdit

In Old English, Gúthwinë means "Battle-friend".[2]

Portrayal in adaptationsEdit

The Lord of the Rings film trilogyEdit

Guthwine

Guthwine in the New Line film.

In The Two Towers, Gúthwinë is shown as having a fullered blade and both the guard and the pommel were of bronze. The guard was shaped like horses' heads, one on each side of the blade.

The sword slew many orcs in its time, especially Uruks of Isengard, and earned a large reputation as the sword of Rohan.
