The tree was symbolic of the righteous dominion of the Númenorians. There had been a White Tree named Nimloth in Númenor, which was descended from the white tree Telperion in Valinor, one of the two holy trees . So the elves gave the Númenorians a seedling as a token of their friendship.
The White Tree of Gondor stood as a symbol of Gondor in the Court of the Fountain in Minas Tirith.

Where was Gondor when the Westfold fell ? Where was Gondor when our enemies closed in around us!? Théoden: “Where was Gon — No, my Lord Aragorn, we are alone.” [Théoden walks from Aragorn.]
When Aragorn leads his company away from Edoras towards the Dwimorberg, the haunted mountain, and the Paths of the Dead, he leaves Éowyn behind him, his last words to her nothing more than, “Nay, lady”.
From what I’ve read, Gondor seems to be based mostly on the Byzantine Empire . Tolkien drew inspiration from their mutual struggles with the Goths and Langobards.
The White Tree of Gondor was the symbol of the realm of Gondor . While there were several trees referred to as the ” White Tree ,” the best-known of these grew in the Court of the Fountain at Minas Tirith.
Rangitata Valley, South Island In the South Island’s Rangitata Valley area, you’ll find the dramatic scenery of Rohan , as seen in The Two Towers, on the real – life grassy outcropping called Mt. Sunday.
Gondor was in a very crucial position, in order to guard Middle Earth and because of Gondor’s proximity to Mordor, its military forces had to be proficiently trained and vigilantly on guard at all times. Because of this, they were arguably the strongest country that opposed Sauron.
New Zealand’s rugged scenery was the location for much of the Lord of the Rings trilogy and The Hobbit films, but it was a 1,250 acre working sheep farm on North Island that became Hobbiton , the home of the hobbits in JRR Tolkien’s fantasy land, Middle Earth.
Originally Answered: Where was Gondor when Westfold fell ? Gondor was defending the passes of Anduin the Great at Cair Andros and Osgiliath and was in no possition to offer military aid to the west of Rohan. (This applies to both the movies and the books.)
What was the Westfold , and why did it fall ? He’s probably talking about the First Battle of the Fords of Isen when Théodred his son died. The Westfold is the Western plains of Rohan. If I remember correctly, Aragorn, Gimli and Legolss crossed it while chasing the Uruk-hai.
The Westfold was a region of Rohan that was east to the Gap of Rohan and contained Helm’s Deep. It bordered with the Eastfold via the Snowbourn River.
After the demise of Sauron, Éowyn and Faramir marry and settle in Ithilien, of which Faramir is made the ruling Prince by Aragorn. Faramir and Éowyn have at least one son, Elboron.
He was already in love with Arwen, so there was no room in his heart to love Eowyn or any other woman. Because he met Arwen and fell in love with her when he was only about 18. Later, her father said Aragorn could only have her if he pursued and won the kingship of both north and south again.
So, for example, Aragorn was a virgin until he married Arwen, and Legolas was a virgin , and they were all virgins!
