Type: Artifacts


[The] Stewards never sat on the ancient throne; and they wore no crown, and held no sceptre. They bore a white rod only as the token of their office; and their banner was white without charge....

The Return of the King, LoTR Appendix A, Annals of the Kings and Rulers: Gondor and the Heirs of AnĂ¡rion: The Stewards

At the far end upon a dais of many steps was set a high throne under a canopy of marble.... But the throne was empty. At the foot of the dais, upon the lowest step which was broad and deep, there was a stone chair, black and unadorned, and on it sat an old man gazing at his lap. In his hand was a white rod with a golden knob.
