Chapter XVII

Aragorn and Legolas placed the body of Eruaphadion on Aragorn's royal cape and carried him off the battlefield with Eruanna and Yaviel walking behind with their weapons in front of there faces and tears coming down their cheaks. They carried his body to the room of the dead kings and their they placed him in the center of the room and from their they met Arwen and went to the balcony.

Legolas then looked beyond the battlefield from the balcony and saw the armies of Middle-Earth chearing their great victory. When they came close to the tower, Legolas and his companions went to the room of the dead where the armies had been told to go by the Sentries Legolas had posted.

When they reached there, the armies were knealing at and around the body of Eruaphadion. The royal guards ran to Legolas, Aragorn, and Arwen and began to march inside the room. The guards were covered in sweat and black and red blood. They had there weapons in their hands and had them facing up.

"May he find peace after death!" chanted the men of Gondor, the men of Rohan said, "Bealocwealm hafað fréone frecan forth onsendedgiedd sculon singan gléomenn sorgiendeon Meduselde þæt he ma no wære,Þæt he ma nowere is, þurh niedig rest And mægen deorost Bealo." along with the elves who were sayng, "Hiro hyn hîdh ab wanath."

The men chanted the same things in many different tunes they had never even heard. Legolas looked on the body of Eruaphadion. His face seemed as if it were smiling and was covered in brightness.
