EowynFNext up for my month-long focus on literary heroines… Éowyn. Niece to King Théoden.

Loyal, fearless, graceful, idealistic, beautiful and GREAT with a sword! She is one of my favorite women in literature. Her titles include: Lady of Rohan, Lady of Ithilien and Lady of Emyn Arnen. She triumphed over the Witch-king and proved her unwavering bravery in a crisis.

I will say, if I had my way- I’d live in Rivendell, not Rohan. ahhhh… Middle Earth. And while I’m wishing for the unreasonable, I wouldn’t mind sitting around a pub with C.S. and J.R.R. drinking pints and discussing whatever it was they discussed.
