Author has written 7 stories for Lord of the Rings.

We do not have to visit a madhouse to find disordered minds;

our planet is the mental institution of the universe.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

1749 - 1832


Stories on fanfiction.net

This series of stories is about Éomer King of Rohan and his wife, Princess Lothíriel of Dol Amroth. Originally it was written in my native language as a novel length tale. While translating it into English, I changed the structure, so there are going to be several stand-alone-stories from their first meeting over the arrangement of their marriage to their life as sovereign and consort in Rohan.

My models for Lothíriel are two great medieval women: Queen Leonora of Castile, daughter of Eleanor of Aquitaine and King Henry II of England, and the abbess Hildegard of Bingen, a herbalist, composer and mystic and a Saint of the Catholic Church.

Éomer is based on an essay my sister wrote about 9 years ago for her English course at school, so there is very little of Peter Jackson's rather grumpy version to be found here, though I must admit quite a bit of Hugh Beringar crept into it (the one from the books, not the TV films).

Book List

My stories, which are based on the work of Tolkien (so nothing truly original here), are set in a Medieval society. The reason is pretty simple: I love The Lord of the Rings and I love Medieval History, of late focusing on the Anglo-Saxons, thanks to the Professor.
