She went to the coronation only to please her granddaughter. Young folks still had faith in new kings and suchlike. She knew better; leaders were all alike, feasting off the fat of the land while they sent the young men off to fight and die. This Elessar would be no different than Lord Denethor.

Our new Lord turned to face this people. Radiance surrounded him. He was old yet young, his hands a warrior’s yet healer's too, and the light of wisdom shone in his eyes. Such majesty needed no crown. This man was different; he was truly the King returned.
