Narsil is perhaps the most famous sword in the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy. At the end of the second age of "Middle-Earth," Narsil's blade was shattered as Elendil fell during the Last Alliance of Elves and Men in the great battle against Sauron, creating the Shards of Narsil. Isildur, Elendil's son, then used the broken hilt of Narsil to cut the One Ring from Sauron's finger, breaking the bonds of his power, banishing his evil shadow into the darkness. The Shards were kept in Rivendell, the house of Elrond, for safe keeping. Legend has been told that the sword would one day be reforged and the king would return. Engraved on the pommel are runes in the Elven language of Sindarin that say "Narsil essenya, macil, meletya Telchar carneron Navrotesse," which translates to "Narsil is my name, a mighty sword; Telchar made me in Nogrod."
