The two elves carefully descended from the tree, Thranduil making a living cage around Celeborn. A gathered crowd waited, falling to their knees as the two elves set foot on the ground. Scattered voices expressed hope that Celeborn would remain and rule them.

Scanning the crowd Celeborn muttered, “I am no king. I am a counselor, not a ruler."

Thranduil faced the elves, and addressed the group. “Our people bestow kingship upon those deemed deserving of the responsibility.” Thranduil removed his royal circlet from his head and placed it onto Celeborn's head. “Welcome, your majesty,” he said as he knelt.

A/N - A circlet is a type of crown.
