As told in LOTR Appendix A, “The Kings of the Mark”: Éomer and Éowyn’s father Éomund died in battle in 3002 of the Third Age, due in part to his own rashness; he rode after a band of Orcs “in hot anger, unwarily, and with few men.” Their mother Théodwyn (Théoden’s youngest sister) died of an illness soon after “to the great grief of the king. Her children he took into his house, calling them son and daughter.” Éowyn was seven years old at the time and Éomer was eleven.
