Erkenbrand is a fictional character in J. R. R. Tolkien's legendarium. He appears in The Two Towers, the second volume of Tolkien's fantasy novel The Lord of the Rings.

The name Erkenbrand comes presumably from two Old English words: eorcan (meaning "precious") and brand (meaning "sword").[1]



Erkenbrand was lord of the Westfold of Rohan during the War of the Ring. He plays a critical role in the Battle of the Hornburg when he and Gandalf lead Riders of the Rohirrim in a counter-attack against Saruman's Uruk-hai who had besieged Théoden.

When Théoden rides to the Battle of the Pelennor Fields with Éomer, Grimbold, and Elfhelm, Erkenbrand remains in Rohan in charge of its defence, overseeing the Dunlending prisoners and the repairs to the Hornburg. After the war, Éomer makes Erkenbrand Marshal of the West-mark.[1]


Erkenbrand does not appear in Peter Jackson's film of The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers. Instead, it is Éomer whom Gandalf sets out to find and returns with in the dawn of the final battle at Helm's Deep, to force the Uruk-hai into the Huorns that appeared overnight. He appears in The Lord of the Rings Trading Card Game by Decipher, primarily based on the Jackson movies. He also appears in the PC real-time strategy game, The Lord of the Rings: War of the Ring, based on the book. He also has an extremely rare action figure that was released by ToyBiz.
