|References||The Lord of the Rings|
Edoras was the capital of Rohan.
Wulf son of Freca the Dunlending, invaded Rohan in T.A. 2758 and took Edoras usurping the throne in Meduseld. But the Long Winter, which had lasted five long months, ended and Fréaláf son of Hild came out of Dunharrow and with a small band of men, surprising Wulf, he attacked Edoras and slew Wulf, regaining the city.
Edoras was encircled by a wall, and a dike dug around the hill. It had a spring whose water flowed in a channel along the main road.
The name Edoras is said to mean "the courts" in the Mark-speech of Rohan.
