The White Company was the name of the Prince of Ithilien's guard. It was created by King Elessar in T.A. 3019 to serve the first Prince of Ithilien, Faramir. Its first Captain was Beregond, in recognition of his deeds during the siege of Minas Tirith where he abandoned his post in order to save Faramir from his insane father.[1]
