"Kingship?" said Pippin amazed.\\
"Yes," said Gandalf. 'If you have walked all these days with closed ears and mind asleep, wake up now!"
** Aragorn is further revealed several times during the Battle of the Pelennor Fields and its aftermath, most memorably by his skill in aiding the Black Breath-afflicted Faramir.
--->"Would that there were kings in Gondor, as there were once upon a time, they say! For it is said in old lore: The hands of the king are the hands of a healer. And so the rightful king could ever be known."\\

When Thebes is in the midst of a famine Oedipus investigates the reason and is told that he must discover the murderer of the previous king. Oedipus finds out piecemeal all of these various elements, putting two and two together to realize he himself is the reason.
