Some Lord of the Rings Information

LOTR_ROTK_onesheet_Aragorn-1-500x722Kissin’ Cousins

Aragorn is a descendant of Elros, who was Elrond’s brother. Elrond and Elros were part of a race called “halfelves,” which gave them the power to choose between elven and human lives. Elros picked life as a mortal man, while Elrond set up shop in Rivendell as a immortal elf. This is why Aragorn got to live way longer than normal men.

Didn’t Sauron Forge The Rings of Power?

Celebrimbor made them for Sauron but decided he didn’t trust him completely. He helped him by making rings for men and dwarves but kept the rings for Elves secret.

As a result, the One does not hold the same sway over the Three as, for example, it does the Nine. If, like me, he has no idea that Elrond and Galadriel are mind-communicating about the location of the one thing he craves.

The Most Evil Competition

It wasn’t Sauron. He was once a vassal of Morgoth, who was one of the Ainur.

Morgoth is basically Satan. The Valar actually sent Gandalf and the other wizards to Middle Earth to protect it from Sauron, who was carrying out Morgoth’s evil plans.

Special Shelob

She is the daughter of Ungoliant who spent a lot of time travelling around with Morgoth. All the large spiders in Middle Earth are descended from her, because she would just go ahead and mate with regular spiders and then eat her offspring.

Movin’ Out

Thranduil’s father abandoned Dol Guldur, leaving it vacant for Sauron to take over. By all accounts they abandoned it because they were having territory disputes with Moria.
