Théodred was a prince of Rohan, the only son and heir of King Théoden, who perished in battle during the time Théoden was under Saruman's spell in the late Third Age. In the First Battle of the Fords of Isen he set Grimbold in command with fifty dismounted Riders, while Théodred himself manned the eyot in the centre of the Fords, to cover Grimbold if he was driven back. Amidst the battle Théodred was slain by an Orc-man and his body was defended by the marshal Grimbold. When Elfhelm arrived with reinforcements he found Grimbold fighting two axemen for Théodred's body. His body was buried where he fell, on the fortified eyot in the middle of the Fords of Isen.
