Because of her incredible beauty and gorgeous opera voice (you can listen on line), her adoring fans, mostly young ladies, began walking like her, dressing like her and using her mannerisms. She was quite a star.
Continuing on my previous vein regarding Eomer; Eowyn, during the time of LotR, is only 20 years old. She's left in charge of running King Théoden's household in her teen years, has no one to help defend her when Wormtongue makes his lecherous advances, and then, when she feels as though she has nothing left of worth in her life, sneaks into the Rohirrim army to go out fighting. Talk about strength, and critics complain about the women Tolkien wrote. -Heather
