House of the Stewards

Revision as of 18:37, 30 June 2012 by Gamling (Talk | contribs)

The House of the Stewards was a building in Minas Tirith capped by a great dome.[1] Within was a wide vaulted chamber with shrouded walls. This was filled with marble tables upon which were carved forms of sleeping men - the tombs of the Stewards.[2]

Situated near the House of the Kings on Rath Dínen, this house was the location where Denethor II immolated himself[1] on 15 March, T.A. 3019.[3]
