Portrayal in adaptations
Morwen was played by Robyn Malcolm in the film The Two Towers. She is the mother of Freda and Éothain. Her husband is not named or shown. When Saruman's Army of Uruk-hai invaded Rohan, they spared no one and killed many innocent villagers and burned their homes. Seeing all the death falling upon her family, Morwen decided to send her children away. She set them on a horse and sent them to safety. She is seen later in Helm's Deep where she is reunited with her children. It is likely that Morwen's son fought and died in the Battle of Helm's Deep, as not many Rohirrim survived the end of the battle and she is seen hugging Éowyn desperately.

Morwen was not in the book and was a character invented for the The Two Towers movie, and thus only canonical to the universe of the movies. She was named after the First Age character Morwen, the mother of Túrin Turambar or the character Morwen of Lossanarch, wife of Thengel and mother of Theoden.
