At the end of the [[Second Age]], [[Elendil]]'s great sword [[Narsil]] was already an ancient and famous weapon, forged more than three millennia earlier by the [[Telchar]] of [[Nogrod]]. In the [[War of the Last Alliance]], Elendil fell, and his sword was broken, but its remains were brought to the [[North-kingdom]]. These shards were carried by Elendil's heirs throughout the [[Third Age]], as a token of their ancestry, until the time of the [[War of the Ring]]. The shards were reforged by the smiths of [[Rivendell]] into [[Aragorn]]'s sword [[Andúril]].
