Eowyn and Faramir relationship | The Tolkien Forum
Do you think Eowyn really love Faramir, or she just married the We have to remember that Eowyn lived a very sheltered life, meeting Aragorn. Éowyn is a fictional character in Tolkien's legendarium who appears in his most famous work, There Éowyn met Faramir, with whom she soon fell in love. Two days after the army leaves Minas Tirith, Éowyn meets Faramir and asks him to command the Warden of the Houses of Healing to release.
No, I do not wish for such triumphs, Frodo son of Drogo. With this knowledge, he also realized what his brother had to face, and wished that he had gone on the quest himself — knowing that Boromir would not have been able to resist the temptation to seize the Ring for himself.
Giving the Hobbits provisions, he sent them on their way to continue their quest, but warned Frodo that their guide, Gollumwas a treacherous creature, and that an unknown terror lived in Cirith Ungolwhere Gollum was leading them.
The Return of the King[ edit ] The following evening in Cair AndrosFaramir sent his company south to reinforce the garrison at Osgiliathwhile he and three of his men rode to Minas Tirith.
Faramir rode back to help the fallen. Sauron's second-in-command, the Witch-king of Angmarled a much larger force from Minas Morguland attacked Osgiliath. After Osgiliath was conquered, Faramir decided to stay with the rearguard in order to make sure that the retreat over Pelennor would not turn into a rout. Fortunately, all of the mounted soldiers in the city rode to his aid and brought him back to Denethor in Minas Tirith.
When Faramir returned unconscious, Denethor believed him to be fatally injured. He ordered his servants to build a funeral pyre in the House of Stewards for him and his son. Denethor's temporary servant, the Hobbit Peregrin Tookwent to alert Gandalf and Beregondone of the Tower Guards he had befriended. Gandalf and Beregond stopped the impending sacrifice just in time. Mad with grief, Denethor jumped onto the lit pyre, burning himself alive. But I do not offer you my pity.What happened to Éowyn and Faramir After The Lord Of The Rings ?
For you are a lady high and valiant and have yourself won renown that shall not be forgotten; and you are a lady beautiful, I deem, beyond even the words of the Elven-tongue to tell. And I love you. Once I pitied your sorrow. But now, were you sorrowless, without fear or any lack, were you the blissful Queen of Gondor, still I would love you.
Faramir took up his office as Steward, and began preparing the city for the arrival of Aragorn, who was now King of Gondor.
Aragorn, however, renewed the office, and announced that as long as his line would last, Faramir and his descendants would be Stewards of Gondor. In a draft letter to a reader of The Lord of the Rings, J. Tolkien writes that as Prince of Ithilien, Faramir's duties also included acting as resident march-warden of Gondor's main eastward outpost, rehabilitating the lost territories, as well as clearing it of outlaws and Orcs and cleansing Minas Morgul an old Gondorian city, once named Minas Ithil, that Sauron had taken of evil remnants.
Characteristics[ edit ] Faramir's personality is prominently described in the appendices to The Lord of the Rings: He read the hearts of men as shrewdly as his father, but what he read moved him sooner to pity than to scorn.
In the Extended Edition, one of my favorite scenes from the book is included — the House of Healing. Romantic plot line 2. In the valleys of our hills there are flowers fair and bright, and maidens fairer still; but neither flower nor lady have I seen till now in Gondor so lovely, and so sorrowful.
It may be that only a few days are left ere darkness falls upon our world, and when it comes I hope to face it steadily; but it would ease my heart, if while the Sun yet shines, I could see you still. For you and I have both passed under the wings of the Shadow, and the same hand drew us back.

You will be better prepared to face it in your own manner, if while there is still time you do as the Healer commanded. You and I, we must endure with patience the hours of waiting. This is basically my favorite scene in the entire Extended Edition. There is no warmth left in the sun. It grows so cold.
I do not believe this darkness will endure. Sadly, this is basically the last scene in which Faramir appears in the movie. The very last scene in which he appears is my favorite — after Aragorn gets crowned, he walks in front of some of his subjects. It was the face of one who had been assailed by a great fear or anguish, but has mastered it and now is quiet. Yet suddenly for Faramir his heart was strangely moved with a feeling that he had not known before.
Here was one with an air of high nobility such as Aragorn at times revealed, less high perhaps, yet also less incalculable and remote: As for Eowyn settling down in marriage with a family, I don't think that it's necessarily out of character either. Most women, I'd wager, regardless of their position, strength, influence or badassedness want a partner and children. This isn't so much a social construct as it is a natural inherent drive.
With that, I think that what Tolkien did with her was actually quite honest and even unusual. I think with a character as layered and strong as Eowyn who I love!

But, that isn't necessarily realistic. Lets look at the reasons she wanted to fight and wanted to be on the front line. She wanted her part in the most important challenge her people were facing.
And by the end, that threat was gone. And quite frankly she is a changed person and not for the worst.
