The elder son of Elendil, the first King of Arnor and Gondor. He was the older brother of Anarion. Isildur marched with his father to Mordor during the War of the Last Alliance, and cut the ring from Sauron's hand after Sauron killed Elendil, and the Elf King Gil-Galad. He then took the ring for his own.

From Elendil's death, Isildur inherited the kingship of Arnor in the north and Gondor in the south. However, he was only king for two years as he died in an orc ambush in the Disaster of the Gladden fields along with his two oldest sons. Isildur jumped in the river Anduin after becoming invisible from putting on the Ring, but the Ring betrayed him and slipped off his finger. After becoming visible, he was shot in the back by orc arrows.
Isildur was the King of Gondor who was corrupted by the Ring of Power.

Get the Isildur mug.
Remembered by all from the film "Lord of the Rings" and now used as a group mood swinger to gain access to emotions such as fear, shock, surprise, laughter and euphoria.
