Description:It was the day before Midsummer when messengers came ... and they said that there was a riding of fair folk out of the North.... And the King said: 'At last they have come. Let all the City be made ready!'

Upon the very Eve of Midsummer ... the riders came down the North-way to the gates of Minas Tirith. First rode Elrohir and Elladan with a banner of silver, and then came Glorfindel and Erestor and all the household of Rivendell, and after them came the Lady Galadriel and Celeborn, Lord of Lothl├│rien, riding upon white steeds and with them many fair folk of their land, grey-cloaked with white gems in their hair; and last came Master Elrond, mighty among Elves and Men, bearing the sceptre of Ann├║minas, and beside him upon a grey palfrey rode Arwen his daughter, Evenstar of her people.
