Ecthelion was known as a man of wisdom, who encouraged worthy men to enter into his service. One who did so was the stranger Thorongil, who fought for Gondor and severely damaged the Corsairs' fleet at Umbar in a surprise attack. It later transpired that Thorongil was Aragorn Elessar. Gandalf was also a welcome guest in Minas Tirith at the time, and Ecthelion strengthened Pelargir and refortified Cair Andros.
