Spoilers: Curse of Wyrgende. Poorly written?
Ok I'm in the instance where Eomer visits the stone where the curse is written.
The curse basically says "no son or heir of Fengel would live to sit long on the throne".
Because Theoden and his father Eomer is supposed to be worried because Thjeoden and his father Thengel both lived long on the throne the people had thought the curse had been lifted.
But now everyone (and Eomer) is worried because with the death of Theodred it is thought the curse was still in effect.
My problem = Theodred never took the throne as Theoden is still alive when he dies = so the curse wouldn't apply.
A miss on the part of Turbine or is just simply "poetic license" in the use of Rohan lore/superstition?
