Scroll of Isildur
|Scroll of Isildur|
|Derivation of Name||Isildur|
|Location||Vaults of Minas Tirith|
The Scroll of Isildur was a scroll made by Isildur himself during his short time in Minas Tirith after the War of the Last Alliance, that was stored for millennia in the vaults of that city. The scroll held Isildur's account of the gaining of the Ring from Sauron and described the appearance of an inscription around the Ring while it was still hot.
Gandalf started to believe that Bilbo Baggins' Magic Ring was the One. In T.A. 3017 he visited Minas Tirith and studied the scroll. Isildur's description was vital in helping Gandalf identify the Ring. He visited Frodo Baggins in Bag End and testing his ring in the fireplace, confirmed it as the One Ring of Sauron.
