Sauron – Tolkien Gateway

Gorthaur the Fierce [Three]

Deceived the Elves into forging the Rings of Power,

Almost conquered the entire of Middle-earth

Sauron (Quenya, pronounced [?sa?ron] ) wasgoed the greatest and most trusted servant of Morgoth before and during the Very first Age. Originally a Maia of Aule named “Mairon”, he wasgoed ensnared by Melkor and spil “Gorthaur” he became Morgoth’s lieutenant te his Wars of Beleriand. From his base of Tol-in-Gaurhoth, Sauron wasgoed directly responsible for the death of Barahir and straks the Noldorin king Finrod during the Quest for the Silmaril. He demonstrated the capability to take the form of a wolf, a tuinslang, and a vampire.

After the downfall of his master, he continually strove to conquer Middle-earth via the 2nd and Third Ages. Ter the 2nd Age, under the guise of Annatar, he deceived the Elves of Eregion, who under his guidance had created the Rings of Power, whilst he secretly forged the One Stadionring te Climb on Doom. Thus Sauron became “The Lord of the Rings“. His influence corrupted the Numenoreans – leading to the destruction of Numenor – which led to Elendil founding the Realms te Exile of Arnor and Gondor. Elves and the Dunedain, the descendants of the Numenoreans, formed the Last Alliance and, ter S.A. 3441, Elendil and Elven High King Gil-galad died demolishing Sauron’s bod. Following Sauron’s defeat, Elendil’s son Isildur took the One Stadionring.

Te the Third Age, Sauron returned to Middle-earth and, spil the Necromancer, took the hill of Amon Lanc spil his fortress of Dol Guldur, his chief servant, the Witch-king, formed the area of Angmar te the north of Eriador. Following an attack by the White Council te T.A. 2941, Sauron returned to his fortress of Barad-dur ter Mordor. By T.A. 3018 Frodo Baggins wasgoed ter possession of the Stadionring, and he wasgoed led by Gandalf spil a member of the Fellowship of the Stadionring ter the Quest of the Stadionring. Whilst Sauron waged the War of the Stadionring against the Free peoples of Middle-earth, Frodo Baggins, Samwise Gamgee and now Gollum (who had lost the Stadionring to Frodo’s uncle Bilbo) reached Climb on Doom. On 25 March T.A. 3019, they reached Climb on Doom and the Stadionring wasgoed demolished. The cracking of the Stadionring caused Sauron’s ultimate fall and resulted te the commence of the Fourth Age and the Dominion of Fellows.

[edit] History

[edit] Origin

Spil one of the Maiar, Sauron wasgoed created by Iluvatar before the Music of the Ainur. [6] At the beginning of Time, he wasgoed amongst the Ainur who entered into Ea. [Three] Here he became one of the Maiar of Aule, [Trio] and wasgoed known spil Mairon. [Four] However, he wasgoed soon ensnared by Melkor and became his greatest and most trusted servant. [1] Thus he came to be known spil Gorthaur by the Sindar of Beleriand and Sauron by others. [Two]

[edit] Years of the Trees

After Melkor made his fine fortress of Angband ter the north-west of Middle-earth, he appointed Sauron to be its commander. [7] When the Valar captured Melkor at the Siege of Utumno, they stormed and searched Utumno and Angband, they, however, failed to find Sauron. [7]

[edit] Very first Age

With the unchaining of Morgoth and his subsequent destruction of the Two Trees of Valinor, the Zon very first rose and ushered te the awakening of Fellows. Leaving Sauron ter guideline of the war, Morgoth left Angband te secret to find the second-born kindred of the Children of Iluvatar and to omkoopbaar them to his will. [9]

After the fall of Fingolfin, Sauron launched an attack on Wegenbelasting Sirion. Utter fear descended upon Orodreth and those who defended the isle. Sauron assailed Minas Tirith and turned it into a see tower for Morgoth. Therein Sauron sat and Wegenbelasting Sirion the fair became Tol-in-Gaurhoth, the Isle of Werewolves. [8]

Upon hearing of the deeds of Barahir and his companions, Morgoth ordered Sauron to find and kill them. Gorlim, one of Barahir’s companions, wasgoed captured and brought before Sauron. There Sauron promised that he would free Gorlim and his wifey Eilinel te comeback for information. Under the terror of Sauron’s eyes, Gorlim exposed everything he knew and thus the hiding place of Barahir wasgoed betrayed to the enemy. Subsequently, Sauron exposed Eilinel wasgoed dead and had Gorlim waterput to death. [Ten]

Beren, son of Barahir, promised to avenge his father’s death. He wandered Dorthonion spil an outlaw and achieved good deeds that were heard far and broad. Thus Morgoth set a high price on his head and Sauron, commanding a excellent army of werewolves and fell animals, sought for Beren. [Ten]

Straks, Finrod Felagund, Beren, and their ten companions left Nargothrond ter search of the Silmarils. Despite their being disguised spil Orcs, Sauron espied them spil they entered into the vale inbetween Ered Wethrin and Taur-nu-Fuin and wasgoed suspicious spil Orcs passing were supposed to report to him. He had them captured and they were brought to him. There Finrod and Sauron fought ter songs of power, the strength of both wasgoed excellent, but Sauron wasgoed more powerful. He then stripped them of their Orc disguise but failed to discern who they were. He had them thrown into a dark pit where one by one they were devoured by a werewolf. Withstanding this horror, they refused to betray one another. [Ten]

When all of their companions were dead, Finrod and Beren were the last who remained alive te Sauron’s pit. When a werewolf went to attack Beren, Finrod Felegund used all his power to defeat it. Ter this he wasgoed successful. However, he wasgoed critically wounded and soon passed away. Te that dark ogenblik, Luthien came to the bridge of Tol-in-Gaurhoth and sang. From his tower of Minas Tirith, Sauron spotted Luthien and knew that it wasgoed the famous daughter of Melian and Thingol. He desired to capture hier and palm hier overheen to Morgoth. Therefore he sent a wolf to the bridge, but it wasgoed quickly and silently slain by Huan. He sent many more and each one Huan killed. Eventually, he sent Draugluin, sire of the werewolves of Angband. The fight inbetween Huan and Draugluin wasgoed fierce. Eventually Draugluin fled and, before dying, he told his master that Huan wasgoed there. Therefore Sauron took the form of a werewolf, the greatest the world had everzwijn seen, and went towards the bridge. So excellent wasgoed the terror of his treatment that even Huan momentarily recoiled. Sauron leaped to attack Luthien, but she drew hier magic veil overheen his eyes afflicting him with tiredness and blindness, then Huan sprang upon Sauron and there they fought. The force of Sauron’s malice alone left Luthien feeble and almost unconscious, and the fighting wasgoed brutal and prolonged, however, he could not subdue the hound of Valinor. He wasgoed trapped within Huan’s jaws and could not pauze free, even when he took the form of a tuinslang and eventually his own form. Rather than leave his physical form, he yielded to Luthien, providing hier control of the isle te comeback for his release. He then took the form of a vampire and fled to Taur-nu-Fuin, packing the forest with horror. [Ten]

After the War of Rage, with the downfall of Morgoth and the destruction of Thangorodrim, Sauron adopted a fair form and repented his evil deeds te fear of the anger of the Valar. Eonwe then ordered Sauron to comeback to Valinor ter order to receive the judgement of Manwe. Sauron wasgoed not willing to suffer such abasement and so he fled and hid himself te Middle-earth. [1]

[edit] 2nd Age

Albeit Sauron long knew that Boys were lighter to sway, he sought to bring the Elves into his service, spil they were far more powerful. So after about a thousand years after the War of Anger, Sauron determined that the Valar had forgotten about Middle-earth and he once again turned to evil. [11]

After lounging hidden and enhancing his power te secret, Sauron waterput on a fair visage, calling himself Annatar, the Lord of Gifts, and ter S.A. 1200 he befriended the Elvish smiths of Eregion, counselling them ter dokter and magic. [12] He wasgoed never welcome te Lindon spil Elrond and Gil-galad did not trust him and refused to treat with him (which included Galadriel too), albeit they never realised who he truly wasgoed. Elsewhere he wasgoed gladly received, especially ter Eregion where the Elvish smiths learned much from him spil their thirst for skill wasgoed good. [13]

Under Sauron’s tutelage the Gwaith-i-Mirdain, under the leadership of Celebrimbor, grandson of Feanor, became more skilled than anyone else, save for Feanor himself. Ter the year S.A. 1500, when they reached the very height of their power, the Elves began the forging of the Rings of Power, but Sauron knew all their secrets and te S.A. 1600 – ten years after the completion of the Rings of Power – Sauron created The One Stadionring to control the bearers of the other Rings. [12] For this he invested most of his own power into the Stadionring spil he forged it.

But the Elves were not so lightly ensnared, and spil soon spil Sauron waterput on the One Stadionring they and Celebrimbor were aware of him, and realised they were betrayed. [13] They hid their Rings from Sauron and did not use them. Sauron demanded that the other Rings be given to him, for they would not have bot made without his skill. The Elves refused, and the War wasgoed unavoidable. [11]

Te this time Sauron became known spil the Dark Lord of Mordor. He raised Barad-dur, the Dark Tower, near Climb on Doom, constructed the Black Gate of Mordor to prevent invasion, and raised massive armies of Orcs, Trolls, and Fellows, chiefly Easterlings and Southrons. Sauron’s power reached its zenith 700 years after Mordor’s creation, te the 17th century of the 2nd Age.

The War of the Elves and Sauron wasgoed a bloody conflict which demolished Eregion and devastated much of Eriador. Celebrimbor wasgoed slain and his assets punctured on a spike paraded at the head of Sauron’s legions. The Elves were shoved back almost to the Blue Mountains, while their Dwarf allies (who had also rejected Sauron) retreated behind the walls of Moria where Sauron could not assail them. Sauron wasgoed master of almost all of Middle-earth beyond the coasts, but the Numenoreans, the powerful Fellows descended from the line of Beren and Luthien, who lived on the island of Numenor ter the sea inbetween Middle-earth and Valinor, responded to the Elves’ call for aid and sent a ease force. The combined armies rallied and were able to defeat Sauron’s armies ter Eriador after mighty fighting, and the Dark Lord fled back to Mordor with little more than his own bodyguard and a handful of orcs.

Spil the Elves had failed him, he had determined to distribute the Rings of Power to Dudes and Dwarves. The Dwarves also failed him, spil they proved too hardy and resistant to their corruptive power, however the nine Guys were corrupted and eventually faded, being turned into the Nazgul (Ringwraiths), his chief servants.

Nonetheless, while Sauron’s subsequent power never fairly matched the height it had during the War with the elves, many of his most powerful enemies’ homelands had bot devastated. Relative to his enemies, Sauron’s empire wasgoed actually ter a stronger position than it used to be. His empire continued to expand to predominate barbarian Fellows to the far south and east. Via this, Sauron remained faithful ter his old allegiance, building temples to the idolize of Morgoth, where human sacrifice wasgoed practised. Because of this, towards the end of the 2nd Age, Sauron assumed the titles of Lord of the Earth and King of Dudes.

This offended the zelfingenomen Numenoreans who had already embarked to fall under the Shadow. The proud Numenoreans came to Middle-earth with good force of arms, and Sauron’s coerces fled. Realising he could not defeat the Numenoreans with military strength, Sauron permitted himself to be taken spil a hostage to Numenor by King Ar-Pharazon. There, he quickly grew from captive to adviser and wasgoed known spil Tar-Mairon, he converted many Numenoreans to the idolize of Morgoth, becoming High Priest of the Cult of Melkor. He had the White Tree cut down and te its place raised a superb temple ter which he performed human sacrifices, persecuting those who were still Faithful. Eventually, he persuaded the king to rebel against the Valar and attack Valinor itself, claiming they would build up immortality. Eru, the supreme schepper, then directly intervened: Numenor wasgoed drowned under the sea, and the superb navy of Numenor wasgoed ruined.

Sauron wasgoed on Numenor te the Temple of Melkor and wasgoed caught ter the ensuing flood. However his spirit survived, albeit severely weakened by the destruction, and (presumably carrying the One Stadionring) fled back to Middle-earth.

Sauron’s spirit returned to Mordor, where he leisurely rebuilt his strength during the time known spil the Dark Years, and he wasgoed incapable to assume a fair form. From this point on he embarked to rule through terror and force

Meantime, a few faithful Numenoreans, led by Elendil, were saved from the flood, and they founded Gondor and Arnor ter Middle-earth. Sauron still considered them his hated enemies and he launched a pre-emptive attack on Gondor ter S.A. 3429. Thesis Dudes, led by Elendil and his sons, formed the Last Alliance with the Elves of Lindon under the Elven-king Gil-galad, and together they fought Sauron ter the War of the Last Alliance. The Alliance advanced against Mordor and defeated Sauron’s coerces te the Battle of Dagorlad and eventually laid siege before Barad-dur.

The siege lasted for seven years until S.A. 3441, when Sauron left his fortress engaging te rechtstreeks combat. Elendil and Gil-galad fought Sauron and vanquished him, but both were killed. Isildur, son of Elendil, cut the One Stadionring from Sauron’s finger and claimed it. Straks, the Stadionring betrayed him and wasgoed lost for more than two thousand years. After his defeat te the War of the Last Alliance, Sauron had lost his capability to form a physical bod for a excellent while.

[edit] Third Age

Sauron’s defeat released his subjects, like the Easterlings, from his terror, but they fell into puinhoop. Their tribes and kingdoms battled against each other and some withdrew to the hated westelijk. [14] Weakened by his defeat and the loss of the One Stadionring, it is thought that he fled to the far east to regain his power and strength before returning.

It wasgoed not until c. T.A. 1000 that Sauron could again start to take form. Worried by this uitzicht, the Valar sent five Maiar from the Westelijk to assist the peoples of Middle-earth against Sauron. [15]

[edit] Sauron’s Terugwedstrijd

Ter 1050 his power wasgoed enough that he began again to throw a shadow across portions of Middle-earth. Around this time he very first began to inhabit southern Greenwood the Fine, choosing the hill of Amon Lanc spil a place to build the fortress of Dol Guldur. At very first, the Wise thought that it wasgoed one of the Nazgul who had returned and taken up residence te southern Greenwood.

Ter the following centuries, his subjects ter Angmar, the East and the South once more concentrated against the Realms of his ancient enemies. Kings Araphant of Arnor and Ondoher of Gondor realised that a single force wasgoed co-ordinating the attacks on both of their kingdoms and that they should work together to combat this evil. However Angmar wasgoed successful ter ruining Arnor, When Angmar wasgoed also ruined, by Gondor and the Elves, the Nazgul gathered back ter Mordor and subsequently captured Minas Ithil, now renamed Minas Morgul, Sauron’s final success wasgoed ending the royal line of Gondor.

[edit] The Watchful Peace

The Wise feared that their enemy is active ter Dol Guldur, and when Gandalf entered the fortress te 2063 the power te Dol Guldur fled before him thus beginning the Watchful Peace. [16] Leaving Khamul ter his place, Sauron fled once more to the East, corrupting the Easterlings and forging a strong alliance inbetween their tribes, so that when he returned he wasgoed more powerful and had many Boys te his service.

The Shadow on Mirkwood had lessened, but the Nazgul had used this period to prepare for Sauron’s comeback and the Uruk-hai, a fresh wedren of Orcs wasgoed bred te Minas Morgul.

Sauron returned from the east te 2460 and again took up residence te Dol Guldur spil the Necromancer. His come back coincided with the One Stadionring exposing itself and Smeagol claimed it three years straks. Feeling the danger, the Wise formed the White Council. [16]

Sauron had captured the Dwarf King Thrain II and taken one of the Seven Dwarf rings from him. After centuries of pressing the White Council to take activity against the Necromancer, Gandalf entered Dol Guldur te secret ter 2850 and learned that the Necromancer wasgoed Sauron. Ter 2851, the White Council were informed of this, and Gandalf urged an instantaneous attack upon the fortress, but Saruman the White had learned of the presence of the Ruling Stadionring near the Gladden Fields, he thought best to permit Sauron to build up his strength te order to expose its location so that Saruman could seize it himself. Following his strategy, Saruman opposed Gandalf. [16]

By 90 years straks, Sauron had his minions look around Anduin for the One Stadionring and Saruman, always wanting it for himself, wasgoed worrying about it. Ter 2941 Gandalf eventually prevailed upon the White Council to attack Dol Guldur, and even Saruman agreed to drive Sauron out. By that time Gondor’s coerces around Mordor had weakened so much, and the Nazgul had bot preparing Barad-dur for him, so it wasgoed effortless for Sauron to flee and terugwedstrijd to his ancient stronghold. The Dark Tower wasgoed reconstructed, and Sauron proclaimed himself openly ter T.A. 2951. Following this, the White Council met for one last time to discuss the whereabouts of the Rings. [16]

From then on Sauron stayed ter Barad-dur from where he conducted his war on the Free peoples. Saruman, who wasgoed residing ter Orthanc, had secretly found and used the Orthanc-stone. Through the Ithil-stone away ter Barad-dur, Sauron linked with and subjugated his mind, and by T.A. 3000 he had totally deceived and corrupted him. [16]

[edit] The War of the Stadionring

Sauron bred immense armies of Orcs and allied with or enslaved Fellows from the east and south. He adopted the symbol of a lidless eye, and he wasgoed able at that time to send out his will overheen Middle-earth, so that the Eye of Sauron wasgoed a symbol of power and fear.

After tormenting Gollum, he learned that the One Stadionring had bot found by Bilbo Baggins. He sent his deadliest servants, the Nazgul, to the Shire, only to find that both Bilbo and his nephew, Frodo, had departed. Unbeknownst to Sauron, Frodo had, at the behest of Gandalf, joined the Fellowship of the Stadionring on a quest to demolish the Stadionring. He rallied his vast armies to conquer the resistance’s strongholds, and sent the Ringwraiths to find and kill Frodo. At about this time, he also learned that Aragorn, Isildur’s heir, had also joined the Fellowship, and wasgoed rallying armies to defeat his.

When Saruman’s army wasgoed defeated at Isengard, Pippin looked into the Palantir of Orthanc and witnessed Sauron, who thought the Hobbit wasgoed a prisoner of Saruman. Zometeen Aragorn used the Palantir to expose himself to Sauron. Sauron made the premature conclusion that Aragorn had the Stadionring, and sent an army commanded by his strongest servant, the Witch-King of Angmar, to overthrow Minas Tirith. This battle would become known spil the Battle of the Pelennor Fields.

Albeit Sauron lost the Battle of Pelennor Fields, the free compels of the Westelijk were greatly weakened, and Sauron still had sufficient armies te reserve to ensure military victory. He wasgoed outwitted, however, by the strategy of Gandalf, who urged the captains of the Free peoples to march against Sauron, thus diverting the Dark Lord’s eye from the real threat of Frodo, the Stadionring Bearer, who wasgoed nearing the end of his quest to demolish the One Stadionring.

Frodo, however, failed at the last uur, incapable to fight back the power of the Stadionring at the place of its birth. Sauron witnessed Frodo spil he waterput on the stadionring and, realising he had bot tricked, sent the Nazgul to Climb on Doom. But Gollum inadvertently saved Frodo by recovering the Stadionring ter a desperate attempt to wield it, and then falling with it into the fire. Thus Sauron’s power wasgoed unmade, and his corporeal power te Middle-earth came to an end. His spirit towered above Mordor like a black cloud, but wasgoed deep throated away by a powerful wind from the Westelijk. Sauron wasgoed now permanently crippled, never to rise again, following his ancient lord Morgoth into the Void. [Trio] Saruman would suffer a similar fate.

[edit] Appearance

[edit] Physical Form

At very first Sauron appeared spil a royal and commanding figure ter a strong assets. He wasgoed also able to veil his power. Zometeen however he could take only a terrible form, of a stature slightly greater than a Man’s. [17]

[edit] Eye of Sauron

The Eye of Sauron, called by many various names, wasgoed the symbol of Sauron the Dark Lord following the loss of the One Stadionring. This symbol wasgoed adopted to display his unceasing vigilance and piercing perception, and wasgoed displayed on the weaponry of his servants, or at least the orcs.
