Narsil/Anduril are perhaps the most famous swords in "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy. At the end of the second age of Middle-earth, Narsil's blade was shattered, as Elendil fell during the Last Alliance of Elves and Men in the great battle against Sauron, creating the Shards of Narsil. Isildur, Elendil's son, then used the broken hilt of Narsil to cut "The One Ring" from Sauron's finger, breaking the bonds of his power, banishing his evil shadow into the darkness.The Shards were kept in Rivendell, the house of Elrond, for safe keeping. Legend told that the sword would one day be reforged and the king would return. In the New Line Cinema film, "The Return of the King", Anduril was reforged from the Shards of Narsil for Aragorn by elvensmiths in Rivendell. Elrond said of the legendary blade, The man who can wield the power of this sword can summon to him an army more deadly than any that walk this earth. " The inscription down the length of the blade on both sides is in the Tolkien language of Quenya, written in the runes of Eregion, that say "Nanye Anduril i ne Narsil i macil Elendilo. Let the thralls of Mordor flee me. The blade inscription features runes framed by stylized symbols of the Sun and the Moon, which represent Anrion and Isildur, the sons of Elendil, and seven symbolic stars that represent Elendil, who died wielding Narsil in battle against Sauron. Inscribed on the pommel are runes in the Elven language of Sindarin that say "Narsil essenya, macil meletya; Telchar carneron Navarotesse". This translates to Narsil is my name, a mighty sword; Telchar made me in Nogrod. Includes a parchment certificate of authenticity.

Anduril historical facts: Aragorn set out for the War of the Ring, Narsil was reforged by Elven smiths of Rivendell, and Aragorn renamed it "Andúril". Aragorn carried the sword during his journey south as part of the Fellowship of the Ring, and fought with it, the Sword That Was Broken or the Sword Reforged.
Already famous during the War of the Ring, Aragorn often used the sword to help establish his credentials as the Heir of Isildur and the throne of Gondor. This was especially true when he convinced the Dead Men of Dunharrow to fulfill their oath to support Gondor in its time of need. Andúril means "Flame of the West" in Quenya, composed of andúnë, "west" and ril, "brilliance". "West" here refers to Númenor. Renewed shall be blade that was broken, The crownless again shall be king.The sword is not seen again until The Return of the King when Aragorn and the Rohirrim were camped at Dunharrow. Arwen pleaded with her father Elrond to reforge the sword, convinced that the enemy could be defeated. Reluctantly, Elrond agreed and had the shards of Narsil reforged into Andúril by the smithies of Rivendell. The sword was then engraved with runes saying Anar. Nányë Andúril I né Narsil i macil Elendilo. " in Quenya, which translates as "Sun. The slaves of Mordor shall flee from me.
