40 Little-Known Facts About Aragorn from Lord of the Rings
He Couldn’t Be Corrupted by Sauron
There are very few characters in Lord of the Rings who are not corrupted by Sauron at some point. Even Gandalf, the wise wizard, is hesitant to touch a Palantir, the dark crystal spheres that Sauron used to spread his evil.
The fact that Gandalf feels corruptible speaks to the immense power Sauron wields. Even that power wasn’t strong enough to corrupt Aragorn, though. We see that he willingly returns the ring to Frodo. What’s more, Aragorn was able to use a Palantir and speak directly to Sauron without being corrupted. He’s truly the very best that mankind has to offer.
