Elendil

In Middle-earth, the fantasy universe of J. R. R. Tolkien, Elendil is the father of Isildur and Anárion. In the Last Alliance (of Elves and Men) when Sauron came to battle himself, he felled Elendil, and Gil-galad, but good came out of Elendil's death, for his sword, Narsil, broke under his weight when he fell, and Isildur used the hilt shard and cut the One Ring from Sauron's hand.
