Decipher Card of the Anor-Stone
Palantir of Minas Anor. The Anor-Stone was originally owned by Anarion. His brother Isildur lived in Minas Ithil and owned the Ithil-Stone. In 2002, the people of Minas Ithil were attacked by the Witch-King and the city was lost. Sauron had possession of the Ithil-Stone. The Stewards of Gondor protected the Anor-Stone well, for it was one of their most valuable tokens. it was located in the highest peek of the city, the Tower of Ecthelion. No Steward used the dangerous palantir, for no one knew who would be at the other end. That is, no Steward but Denethor II. This was because he wanted to hear news of Aragorn, heir to the throne of Gondor. He used the stone to spy on his people and on other people in far-off places. He figured out the Aragorn was riding with Theoden. Soon after, Denethor met the gaze of Sauron and he could not fight him off. Sauron could see all in Minas Tirith. The stone was covered and not used for a time, but when Sauron's forces attacked, Denethor looked in again. He saw the flee of Corsair ships on the Anduin. He then saw Frodo Baggins, bearer of the Ring, imprisoned in Cirith Ungol. Though Sauron did not have the Ring, Denethor believed so. He killed himself and Sauron was overjoyed, though he was soon after defeated.
