Sauron (also known as Gorthaur, Annatar, Artano, Aulendil, the Necromancer) was a Maia and he was Morgoth´s foremost servant. When Morgoth was imprisoned by the other Valar Sauron took control of Angband and Morgoth´s armies. He took the name Annatar and became friends with the elves. Together they made the rings of power. Sauron betrayed the elves and made the one ring to rule over the others, "One ring to rule them all, One ring to find them, One ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them". His body was destroyed when the Valar destroyed Númenor and his dark spirit returned to Mordor. Aragorn´s ancestor Isildur took the ring from Sauron but lost it in the river of Anduin. Sauron rose to power once again and started the war of the ring. He had learnt from Gollum that the one ring had been found again and that it was carried by a hobbit. He sent the Nazgûl to find the ring but they failed. When the ring was destroyed in Orodruin Sauron´s power was destroyed forever.
