A council chamber in Minas Tirith, TA 2076
"It matters not. Whether he calls himself Prince of Dol Amroth or Lord of Belfalas, Galador is still a loyal liegeman of Gondor."
"Are you certain, Lord Steward? He would not be the first to use the dea...disappearance of the King to attempt advancing his own fortunes."
Mardil shook his head. "Belfalas alone is too weak; where could he turn for support? Umbar? They'd use Cobas Haven as a bridgehead for an attack, and as soon as they were established in Belfalas, get rid of him. He may be young, but I doubt Galador is that much of a fool."
Originally written for RiverOtter, who requested stories about Dol Amroth (preferably the early days) for her birthday.
