"I fear your lord husband is dead, your grace. By the Gladden Fields near the Greenwood we were beset by many foes—orcs out of the mountains. The fight went ill, and my lord told me—he told me to keep this from capture, at any cost."

The shards of Narsil.

Story Notes:

For the prompt: Isildur's wife hearing the news of Isildur's death and receiving the shards of Narsil from Ohtar.

I've given Ohtar in this story another, personal, name, since it says in Unfinished Tales:

"Ohtar is the only name used in the legends; but it isprobably only the title of address that Isildur used at this tragic moment, hiding his feelings under formality. Ohtar 'warrior, soldier' was the title of all who, though fully trained and experienced, had not yet been admitted to the rank of roquen, 'knight.' But Ohtar was dear to Isildur and of his own kin."
