Arise now, Riders of Théoden!
Wæs þú hál, and welcumen! Welcome to Cyning, the approved fanlisting for the lion-hearted Lord of the Mark in J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings, Théoden King. I've loved the King of the Rohirrim since first reading LotR, and this was only compounded by Bernard Hill's solid gold performance in the film versions The Two Towers and The Return of the King. Théoden is a man of great honour and even greater bravery, who has known much sorrow and trouble in his life, but unlike his polar opposite Denethor II, he faces the ups and downs of his position with nobility, strength, and hope. If you're a fan of this amazing King, please add your name to his listing!
'Cyning' (pronounced /ˈky.ninɡ/ -- something close to KUUH-ning) is the Old English or Anglo-Saxon word for king, and seeing as the Professor used Old English as a stand-in for the language of the Rohirrim, it seemed a fitting title. ♥ Cyning was always appended to the end of names in Old English, which is why you often hear Théoden referred to as "Théoden King", and not the other way around as we're used to in modern English.
You are viewing version 1 of Cyning, þæt wæs god cyning! (meaning "That was a good king!", from the Old English language text of Beowulf -- fellow ancient lit students, raise your spears!), featuring brushes by AmarieVeanne-Stock. It should be viewable and readable on all resolutions, browsers, and devices; but if this is not the case for you, please let me know, and I will attempt to rectify this!
