** ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'' also has Second Age human lord ''Elendil'' ("star-friend"/"elf-friend") and his sons ''Isildur'' ("moon-servant") and ''Anárion'' ("sun-son"). This also led indirectly to the naming of the three original major cities of Gondor: Minas Ithil ("Tower of the Moon") east of the Anduin, Minas Anor ("Tower of the Sun") west of the Anduin, and the capital Osgiliath ("Citadel of the Host of Stars") on the banks of the Anduin. However, years later, the Ringwraiths took Minas Ithil for the Dark Lord, driving the Gondorians out of Ithilien (the area around Minas Ithil) and renamed named the city "Minas Morgul" ("Tower of Sorcery"); Osgiliath, which had already begun to decline due to plagues and the shifting of the royal capital to Minas Anor, was finally abandoned. After the fall and renaming of Minas Ithil, Minas Anor was given its familiar name: "Minas Tirith" ("Tower of Guard").
