Here's what I think... [In reply to] Can't Post

1. It's a nice part of Eowyn's character arc, that shows her determination to fight and not to be treated as 'just a women'.

2. I never really noticed this, but I think that it might be more from Theoden's point-of-view (is he taller than her?), and also to show that she is smaller than men.

3. She obeys him because she has to, not just because he is her uncle but also because he is her king. And his tone implies to me that this is not a request anymore but a command. She's not happy about it, though.

4. I think that I would obey the king's command, family or not.

5. Now, I have always thought Eowyn's wish to fight quite arrogant and selfish, especially in this scene. Theoden is already one heir down, with the death of Theodred, he has no idea where his new heir, Eomer, is at that moment. Theoden has no one else left to lead the people to Helm's Deep, in case he is killed (and I don't think Theoden has any other choice but to fight - he is in command, after all). He has to look after his people somehow, and Eowyn is the only member of the royal family left.
