Folcred

Notes

1

Folcred's name was doubtless patterned after that of his father Folcwine ('friend of the people'), and his grandfather Folca (simply 'folk'). Thus Folcwine's heir apparent followed a family tradition of naming styles. In the event, Folcred's early death, and that of his brother Fastred, meant that Folcwine was in fact succeeded as King of Rohan by his youngest son Fengel.
