The Rings of Power are very powerful objects of Middle-earth.

The One RingEdit

The One ring, forged by Sauron, king of Gorgoroth in the Sammath Naur is all together evil. The Ruling Ring is greatest of all the twenty Rings of Power, doubtless the most potent artifact extant in Middle-earth. In form, it appears as a beautiful, unadorned band of pure gold, never suffering any signs of wear. When heated in fire (e.g., an ordinary fireplace), a fine, minute inscription becomes visible running along both the interior and exterior of the band. Engraved in Tengwar characters, using the archaic Black Speech, the legend reads:

Ash nazg durbatulûk, ash nazggimbatul, ash nazg thrakatulûk agh burzum-ishi krimpatul.

Which translated, means:

One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them, One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them. (— LotRI,p.8l.)

It is in the hands of the Kings of Gorgoroth.

  2. Vilya
  3. Narya

The Nine RingsEdit

Unlike all the other Rings of Power, the Nine are so tainted that the Free Peoples try to avoid them. Sauron declared that they bring immortality, but they only turn the bearer into a Ringwraith.

The Ring of AngmarEdit

The first of the Nine Rings was given to the king of Kingdom of Angmar. It is the mightiest of the Nine Rings.
