Epic LOTR infographic details the dramatic life of the One Ring

Though it only cameos in J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit, the One Ring is the catalyst that sets off the entire saga of Lord of the Rings. Want to follow the saga from the ring’s perspective?

A new infographic serves as a timeline of sorts tracing the One Ring—you know, the one that will find them, bring them all and in the darkness bind them—and its fascinating to follow all the steps through Tolkien’s convoluted world of Middle-Earth.

The entire graphic tracks the ring through seven ring bearers across 4,860 years. Heck, it even breaks down the timeline of the War of the Ring separately. Not bad.
