1. Prologue - Notes from Gilrénna
"I am Gilrénna, daughter of Halcwyn, daughter of Halasían and sister of Hanasían. I have now in my keeping much of the writings of my uncle Hanasían, and also some of the collected writings of many who lived before his time which he collected. I wish now to share here some of these writings with people who will never delve into the great halls of knowledge in Minas Tirith, and more recently, the restored libraryin Annúminas. May the readers learn and know of these events, witnessed and written of from the years leading up the the great War of the Ring, during it, and long afterward. May we remember the great victory and have peace in our days."
