Marriage had not restrained her. Her husband knew better than to try. She warned him he was wedding a warrior maiden and she had no intent of changing.
When the healers told her that she must no longer gallop across the fields on Widfola’s back she was resentful, even angry at the child growing within her.
But when Éowyn held her firstborn to her breast, the last slithers of ice within her heart melted. No longer did she thirst for glory and battles, nor restlessly roam the house.
Now a happily contented mother, the wild shieldmaiden was tamed at last.
