Gléowine was a Rohirrim soldier who served as Théoden's minstrel during the War of the Ring.

BiographyEdit

During the funeral of King Théoden, Gléowine made a song about the King's fall, and also named the previous Kings of Rohan. It was said that Gléowine made no songs afterwards.[1]

Out of doubt, out of dark, to the day's rising
he rode singing in the sun, sword unsheathing.
Hope he rekindled, and in hope he ended;
over death, over dread, over doom lifted
out of loss, out of life, unto long glory.

EtymologyEdit

The name Gléowine might mean "music-friend", from gléo ("music, harp") and wine ("friend"). The suffix -wine can also be seen in Fréawine and Goldwine.[citation needed]

Portrayal in adaptationsEdit

Gléowine is a major character in the Lord of the Rings Online. He was Horn's mentor. He is first encountered being banished from Edoras at the command of Gríma Wormtongue, and later accompanies the player and his old apprentice on their journeys in the Riddermark.
