"The gwelaith -- an ancient law of Gondor. What is it in the common tongue?"
"Binding with rope?" Estel translates doubtfully -- his best guess, though it doesn't make much sense.
"Joining as two ropes, like a braid," Elrond corrects. "Joining in a way that strengthens. That was its purpose -- to tie the house of the king to the house of his steward, and strengthen both offices by the connection."
It is an ancient law, that the king of Gondor must marry a member of the steward's house. If Aragorn is lucky, maybe it will turn out to be so ancient that everyone's forgotten about it...
