Tower of Ecthelion

Though a White Tower had graced the highest point of Minas Tirith since ancient times, it was rebuilt by Steward Ecthelion I some three centuries before the War of the Ring, and so gained his name. The Tower of Ecthelion was used to bear the standard of the City, and—at least during the last years of the Third Age—held the palantír known as the Anor-stone.
