A token of royalty in the Northern Kingdom.

The sceptre is a silver rod, which was originally a symbol for the Lords of Andúnië in Númenor.

After the Downfall of Númenor, it belonged to the Kings of Arnor. After the North Kingdom was divided, it was passed through the descendants of the Kings of Arthedain, the Chieftains of the Dúnedain.
