|"Hermit's Hat" is a concept which has only appeared in an adaptation of the works of J.R.R. Tolkien.|
|Events||Battle against the Mystics|
The Hermit's Hat was a constellation far to the east of Rhûn in Arda. The Hermit's Hat was invented by Amazon Studios for The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power.
The Hermit's Hat was a constellation recognized by the Mystics that could only be seen somewhere deep within Rhûn.
During the late Second Age, a group of three Mystics came west from Rhûn seeking Sauron. When they found a being they believed to be Sauron, they told him of the Hermit's Hat. They were defeated after realizing that he was an Istar rather than Sauron. Accompanied by Elanor Brandyfoot, the Istar then departed the Grove for Rhûn in order to find out more about the constellation.
