Lesser Rings

Postby original wombat » Thu Nov 19, 2015 2:59 pm

Hi all.

I've always wondered about those rings of power referred to as 'Lesser Rings'. I can remember only one mention of them in The Shadow of the Past chapter of Fellowship of the Ring. Is there any information about them anywhere?

I can't recall any. Presumably they exist somewhere, but they don't come into the story.

I haven't read the HoME volumes, though, so I don't know if there is anything in there.

Just be aware that the reference on that page to "Narchuil" as one of the lesser rings in an "adaptation" of LOTR is just that, an adaptation, and no such name was ever used by Tolkien.

Saruman is wearing some kind of ring, though I think it is impleid somewhere that he attempted to make it himself.
There's not much mention of lesser rings at all in the books, and I don't believe any of them were ever ofiicially named by the elves, unless it were personal names by individual elves (Such as Bilbo naming his sword Sting.)
