The duties of Eowyn
Just re-reading RotK, and I came across the section where Eowyn rides with the Rohirrim as Dernhelm. Now, I never thought about it before now, but how has she been able to leave the refugees behind? The old, sick an injured in Dunharrow? Who was left behind to govern them? And what is the "understanding" between her and Elfhelm? Surely he would feel duty-bound to inform his King that his niece had disobeyed his orders and followed him into battle?
