LORD OF THE RINGS Series By Amazon Is Headed to Númenor

Lord of the Rings, which is Amazon’s billion dollar series has been covered in mystery since its announcement in 2017. The rumours state that the show will be centered on a younger Aragon, who was played by Viggo Mortensen in the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Later Amazon created a twitter handle for the show that contradicted that.

On 15th February, the handle we’re out the first in the series of maps of Middle-Earth. It’s mostly barren, except for some mountains and forests. It gives a few hints that suggested when the series may be set. As pointed out by Twitter user, @tolkienthot pointed out, the map must be post-War of Wrath, thanks to Beleriand’s absence, a north-western region of Middle Earth was all gone, destructed and submerged under the sea.

This places the series in either the second or third age, which was clarified as the map was updated each week. Each updated map also came with a caption about the forging of rings. All in all, they spell out the verse of the Rings of Power:

Three rings for the Elven-kings under the sky,

Seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone,

Nine for mortal men doomed to die,

One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne;

In the Land of Mordor where the shadows lie.

One ring to rule them all, one ring to find them,

One ring to bring them all, and in the darkness bind them;

In the Land of Mordor where the shadows lie.

LORD OF THE RINGS: What is Numenor?

For those who don’t know, Numenor happens to a mythical island raised from the sea, as a gift to mankind. Inhabited by Dunedain, who thrived here, making it a part of great thinking and culture. It faced destruction towards the end of Second Age, but there were many who escaped, thereby forging Gondor and Arnor.

Obviously, these are just guessed for now. We will know when Amazon’s Lord of the Rings show premieres next year or maybe 2021.
