King Theoden, courageous soldier and leader of the land of Rohan, fell under the power of the wizard Saruman through the slithering machinations of his servant Grima. Only through the intervention of Gandalf the White was Theoden exorcised of Saruman’s corrupting influence. Gandalf said to Theoden, “Your fingers would remember their old strength better if they grasped your sword,” and at that moment Theoden’s mind cleared, his authority as king returned to him, and his great sword, Herugrim, was once more returned to his grasp. Theoden went on to lead the defense of Helm’s Deep and the charge of the Rohirrim to the aid of Gondor and against the hordes of the enemy that assailed the White City. The hope of all Men and Free Peoples then lay in the defense of Minas Tirith.
