Organisations in the western Middle-earth


Official


Heren Requain - Order of Knights is the official list of nobility in Gondor. All peers (condirath, rheinhirath and ereter) are knights of Gondor, but not all knights are peers. Six hundred knights, elders of their families, sit in the Great Council of Gondor.

Tirith Dolen - The Secret service of the royal house, a professional bunch of informers, spies and bodyguards. They are commanded by hîr Dostir Maldring, condir of Haerlond.

Uinendili (The Covenant of Uinen). The covenant that Maia Uinen established with Aldarion the Mariner in Númenor was originally concerned only with the protection, internal order, and well-being of the Guild of Venturers. When the King of Númenor dissolved the guild in II 1883, he made no attempt to nullify the bond between the Lady of the Seas and those of the Venturers who had remained loyal to him during the time of Mûrazôr's rebellion. So it was that Uinen continued to show favour to the line of Imrazôr, and gave protection to all those who became subjects to the Council of Pelargir. On a lesser and more parochial scale than the divinely-established royalty of Númenor (and later Arnor and Gondor), the Covenant of Uinen imbued the old Pelargirean League with a sacred character. Whereas submission to the authority of the priestly monarch was compulsory and essential to Númenórean identity, the friendship of Uinen was just that - a bond of love that could be chosen or rejected without peril to one's status as one of the Faithful. Within her own sphere, the Lady of the Seas could give aid to the exiled Dúnedain, and could invest the judgements of her chosen representative with her own native power of divine retribution. As political order of Gondor underwent far-reaching changes as a result of the actions of the Ship-Kings, the sphere of Uinen's influence narrowed to the boundaries of Dor-en-Ernil and the descendants of Imrazôr the Númenórean.
