The '''Shards of Narsil''' were the pieces of the famous weapon of [[Narsil]] which had been broken by [[Elendil]]'s fall at the end of the [[Second Age]] in the [[War of the Last Alliance]]. It was then that [[Isildur]] slew [[Sauron]] with the hilt of the Shards. Isildur later transported the Shards home with him but he was killed along the way. It was [[Ohtar]], the squire of Isildur who took the Shards and brought them to [[Rivendell]]. The pieces were kept as heirlooms until the time came in [[Third Age]] {{TA|3019|n}} for the shards to be reforged as [[Andúril]].
