Théodwyn certainly showed herself to be blood-kin to Éomer. She could be remarkably determined; some might say stubborn.
Not only had Éowyn failed to convince her daughter that it was quite safe to sleep in the Elven building amongst the trees, but now Legolas was having the same problem.
“Really, pendithen, I promise there are no dangerous spiders…”
Still the child sat, stolidly, refusing to budge.
Served him right for mentioning them to start with, Éowyn thought.
The Elf bent to lift Théodwyn, who clung to him, then groaned, “But Boromir says there is a tree troll under the bed…”
Pendithen - little one.
