Early life Edit

Her mother later died of an unknown illness, heavily implied to be a broken heart because of her father's death. She would not truly smile for a matter of years. Theoden took custody over her and became a father figure to Éowyn and Éomer

Return of the King Edit

Before the Battle of Pelennor Fields, Eowyn disguises herself as a man and bears Merry with her. However, the two are separated in battle. She sees her dying uncle at the mercy of the Witch-king and his fell beast and rushes in to defend him. However, the king briefly gets the upper hand before Merry stabbed him in the back, getting poisoned in the process. Eowyn uses this opportunity and defeats the Witch-king.

Her brother finds her among the dead and Aragorn heals her. While she and Faramir are recovering at the House of Healings, they fall in love with each other and begin a relationship. The couple appear at Aragorn's coronation, thus displaying that they are instead friends.
