|Birth||Late Third Age |
Gálmód was a man of Rohan.
Gálmód must have been born and flourished around the 30th century of the Third Age; he was the father of Gríma Wormtongue, the advisor to King Théoden of Rohan.
The name Gálmód seems to derive from the Old English word for "light-minded, licentious" or "light, wanton mood".
