On a personal note, because I think I see where this question is coming from It’s either Serial Killer Documentaries or Christmas Movies we either Sleighin’ or Slayin’ Christmas shirt. After studying the Holy Roman Empire extensively on my own time, I was eventually exposed to how the subject is often taught today – suffice it to say I was flabbergasted. The idea that the Habsburgs “ruled over” nations like some sort of landlord or that the empire was a hindrance to the nations of Europe is the product of modern misconceptions, not reflective of what those institutions actually were. To put it simplistically, the Habsburgs were accepted for the same reason modern nations don’t spontaneously revolt against their rulers, and the HRE existed just as the modern EU or the US do. Another source was The Vyne Ring or the Ring of Silvanus is a gold ring, dating probably from the 4th century, discovered in a plowed field in Hampshire in 1785. Originally the property of a British Roman called Silvanus, it was apparently stolen by a person named Senicianus, upon whom Silvanus called down a curse. For the god Nodens. Silvanus has lost a ring and has donated one-half [it’s worth] to Nodens. Among those named Senicianus permit no good-health until it is returned to the temple of Nodens.
Well, as most people know by now, Sauron is the one who made the One Ring with a combination of his teachings under Aule and Morgoth. Let’s take a look at the back story. Sauron, thousands of years ago, decided that he was going to try to control the other races. He knew that men were easy to control but he needed a little something extra to control the elves. So he put on a disguise (they knew that he had been a servant of the dark lord Morgoth) and went to them as a teacher. He claimed that he wanted to help them. They were amazed by the things he was able to teach them. He called himself Annatar (meaning Lord of Gifts). Galadriel, Elrond, and Gil-galad were distrustful of him, along with a few others. But most of the elves desired the power that Sauron promised them. Among the things that he taught the elves was how to make rings and imbue them with power. Many lesser rings were made but 19 “great” rings of power were created. The rings would enhance the elves’ natural abilities such as healing, art, and preservation. It would help them make their kingdoms more like Valinor.
