Léod was a Lord of the Éothéod and the father of Eorl the Young.

Biography Edit

During his lordship, the Éothéod once again increased in great numbers and were constrained in the land in which they lived. He was a Lord of the Éothéod that lived in Framsburg between the rivers Greylin and Langwell. He was probably a descendant of the famed Fram, the Dragon-Slayer. Léod was killed trying to tame the horse Felaróf.[1][2][3] Eorl later captured Felarof and his species, the Mearas, became bound to the kings of Rohan as a wergild for Léod's death.
