Lord Denethor was the twenty-sixth ruling Steward of Gondor and father of the War of the Ring heroes Boromir and Faramir. Here we see him with one of the seeing stones or the Palantir of Minas Tirith.

They were made by the Elves of Valinor. Many palantíri were made, but the number is not truely known. Some had power over other stones. They were of various sizes; the smallest had a diameter of about a foot, while the largest filled a large chamber. They are believed to have a power over people, as seen from the experience of Peregrin Took and the Orthanc-stone.
The stones' gaze can pierce anything except darkness and shadow. When the Steward Denethor used the stone, he was convinced that there was no hope for Minas Tirith, driving him to suicide and nearly to the murder of Faramir.

The stones were distributed among seven places: four in Gondor and three in Arnor. Sauron captured the palantír of Minas Ithil and used it to corrupt Saruman, who had the palantír of Orthanc; and Denethor, who had the palantír of Minas Tirith.
