Annunfuiniel [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]'d at the Napoleon guess, which I took to mean "incorrect".

Hmmm - one meeaning of G. Herr is "lord", so "Her-" would be a foreign lord, short one letter. "-grim" would be stern, and they meet in the middle at "-u-".

And "in arms" is the straight clue, as Annun said. Herugrim was Theoden's sword.
