  • Slowly they passed through the short heath and upland grass, speaking no more, until they came to the king’s pavilion.
  • In the inner part of the pavilion was a small space, curtained off with broidered hangings, and strewn with skins: and there at a small table sat Theoden with Eomer and Eowyn, and Dunhere, lord of Harrowdale.
  • And then Aragorn stood up, and all the host arose, and they passed to pavilions made ready, to eat and drink and make merry while the day lasted.
  • At last an evening came when from the walls the pavilions could be seen upon the field, and all night lights were burning as men watched for the dawn.
  • And there in the midst of the fields they set up their pavilions and awaited the morning; for it was the Eve of May, and the King would enter his gates with the rising of the Sun.

  • There are no more uses of "pavilion" in the book.
