King Folcwine desired to lead his men personally but was counselled not to do so, instead command of the forces of Rohan were entrusted to his elder twin sons Prince Folcred and Prince Fastred and although, the allied forces of Rohan and Gondor were victorious, the price paid by Rohan was quite high because both Folcred and Fastred were slain.

I'm impressed how you manage to find all those forgotten moments and bring them to life so perfectly. And I can only agree with noleme, your Men look exactly like they should!

As always a pleasure to see your Tolkien art. Doubly so actually, as this is a gapfiller scene I don't recall seeing yet. You're very good at drawing Men; they look noble, medieval and not at all as unkempt as in the movies; just like I imagine the Middle-earth peoples. One question - is the fur the queen is wearing your own invention, or is it based on actual medieval clothes? Because the boa's (?) design looks a bit like it's intended for males (creating a broad shoulder effect), to me. ;)

Yeah, it is my whim).Perhaps this is some variation  of cloak with fur collar on double brooches fastened on shoulders.
