Theoden in the Aldburg,Eastfold by steamey Theoden in the Aldburg,Eastfold by steamey
Theoden,Theodwyn and her and her children Eowyn and Eomer.
 In 2989, Theodwyn married Eomund of the Eastfold.  They moved to the town of Aldburg in the Eastfold, where her husband acted as chief Marshal of the Mark in charge of Rohan's eastern defenses.  Theodwyn bore two children: Eomer born in 2991, and Eowyn born in 2995. In 3002, Eomund was killed in an orc pursuit in the Emyn Muil. Theodwyn died of grief soon after.Her young children were sent to live with her brother Theoden at Edoras

You did a great job again! Although I detect a theme of partings in your recent work. Eomund went and made himself into a dead hero against the Orcs, and Theodwyn was of course crushed, although she must have already died a little every time here hot-headed lord went hunting the vermin of Mordor regardless of his own posse. It shows in her prematurely aged expression and distracted nature, here. She was Theoden's favorite sister, so it's not too surprising that he had her children fostered at Edoras, and raised them as if they were his own children. As a devotee of Renaissance art I feel Theoden shold be facing the viewer, instead of having his back to them, so we can admire his regal bearing and fine clothes. I do like how he is letting Eowyn hold Herugrim, who is about the same height as her! :)

Yes, I tried as much as possible to follow more closely the text.

The text concerning the actual event is rather thin, but you have done a great job filling in via the character dynamics. :)

I love Rohan. This is a beautiful piece.  You have a knowledge of Tolkien history too. That makes it even better!
