There Gandalf explained to the others how Saruman had imprisoned him and how the White Wizard was creating his own army of orcs to rival Sauron's.

Elrond and Gandalf advised that the Ring should be destroyed in the fires of Orodruin , where it was made. Others dissented or objected, but eventually submitted to Gandalf's plan.

The relatively small number reflected the realisation by Elrond and the other council members that the quest of Mount Doom would not rely upon strength of arms, but on stealth and good fortune.

Several obstacles stood in the company's way. The vast Misty Mountains had to be crossed, for Gandalf was determined not to lead the company near Isengard.

Gandalf decided to take a southern route to the Redhorn Pass and there to cross the Misty Mountains near Caradhras , thereby traversing the mountain range and avoiding Isengard.

Others in the company were loathe enter the maze, as it was now the lair of orcs and something known only as "Durin's Bane".

At the Doors of Durin on the west side of the mountains, Gandalf, after some delay, spoke the password and led the company into the dark.

Having been in Moria on an earlier perilous errand, he was somewhat familiar with the underground passages. Eventually the party came to the Chamber of Mazarbul , where Gandalf read the Book of Records , which revealed the fate of Balin, the leader of an ill-fated attempt to re-colonise Moria.

Soon after, the party was attacked by orcs, and forced to flee the chamber. By then Gandalf was well aware of their location, and he led the party quickly towards the eastern exit.

You cannot pass," he said. The orcs stood still, and a dead silence fell. You cannot pass. Go back to the Shadow! Gandalf and Legolas immediately realised what it was: a Balrog of Morgoth , a servant of the first dark lord.

In a spectacular display of bravery Gandalf faced the demon and broke the bridge both stood upon, leaving the beast to fall into a seemingly bottomless chasm.

But the Balrog's whip lashed out, and grasped Gandalf by the knees, causing him to fall into the pit.

While falling, Gandalf shouted "Fly, you fools" and vanished into the abyss. Yet Gandalf did not die; he and the Balrog fell for a long time, and wizard was burned by the Balrog's fire.

Then they plunged into a deep lake in the depths of the mountain, which Gandalf later said was cold as the tide of death and almost froze his heart.

They fought in the water until finally the Balrog fled into dark tunnels, where the world is gnawed by nameless things, older even than Sauron.

Gandalf pursued the creature until it led him to the spiraling Endless Stair , and they climbed it until they reached Durin's Tower in the living rock of Zirakzigil , the pinnacle of the Silvertine above the clouds.

There they fought , until at last Gandalf threw down his enemy, and the Balrog broke the mountain-side as it fell.

Then darkness took Gandalf, and he passed away. His body lay on the peak. Then darkness took me, and I strayed out of thought and time, and I wandered far on roads that I will not tell Naked I was sent back — for a brief time, until my task is done.

And naked I lay upon the mountain-top. Yet, as he was now the sole emissary of the Valar to Middle-earth, he was granted the power to "reveal" more of his inner Maiar strength.

This naked power that lay within him was seldom used during the remainder of his time in Middle-earth, as his mission was essentially the same: to support and succour those who opposed Sauron.

Nevertheless, when Gandalf's wrath was kindled his "unveiled" strength was such that few of Sauron's servants could withstand him.

Three days later he was found by the windlord Gwaihir, the Lord of the Eagles , who had been sent by Galadriel to find him. He soon learned that Frodo and Sam had left the Fellowship and were attempting the quest of Mount Doom alone.

As Frodo was beyond his assistance now, Gandalf promptly went south to Fangorn Forest , where he met the Three Hunters: Aragorn, Legolas, and Gimli, and gave them messages from Galadriel.

Then he called forth Shadowfax, and rode with them to Edoras. Gandalf by now was keenly aware that the great war to end the age was beginning; if Saruman conquered Rohan then Gondor would be alone with enemies on all sides.

Keep well the Lord of the Mark, till I return. Await me at Helm's Gate. Meanwhile, the Ents along with the hobbits Merry and Pippin moved against Saruman and sent Huorns against the orcs, resulting in the utter ruin of the outer walls of Isengard and the complete annihilation of Saruman's orcs.

There Saruman rejected Gandalf's offer of forgiveness with contempt. Gandalf then broke Saruman's staff and cast him from the Order and the Council.

The wizard's mind had already turned to Gondor and the coming climactic battle in the east. Soon after arriving, Gandalf confronted Denethor II , the Ruling Steward , and learned that he was near despair over the death of his eldest son, Boromir.

Pippin entered the Steward's service in payment of the debt that he and Merry owed, the death of Boromir. Ostensibly they were allies, but the Steward treated him with disrespect and suspicion.

The city was soon besieged by a vast force from Mordor, led by the Witch-king of Angmar. An ill-advised counter attack resulted in Faramir receiving a wound from a poisoned dart; he lay near death inside the Tower.

Still, Gandalf encouraged the men of Minas Tirith to have hope, and dispelled the fear of the Ringwraiths by his very presence. But Sauron's catapults hurled flaming bolts upon the city; soon the first circle of the city burned unchecked.

Denethor now lost all heart as the city burned and his only remaining son hovered near death; he abandoned his leadership of the city.

Gandalf then took it upon himself to direct the defense of the city. When the gigantic ram Grond destroyed the ancient entrance to the city, Gandalf placed himself alone at the ruined gateway.

The Witch-king then appeared in the midst of the blasted gate upon a black horse and threatened Gandalf with death; but Gandalf did not move — seated upon Shadowfax he defied the mightiest of Sauron's minions.

However, the stand-off ended inconclusively, as the morning arrived along with the host of the Rohirrim. Hearing the horns of the Riders of Rohan, the Witch-king departed.

But Gandalf did not pursue his foe, for Pippin brought him news that Denethor was about to commit suicide in the high tower, burning himself and his son Faramir on a pyre like the heathen Kings of old.

Gandalf rushed to stop this madness and was able to save Faramir, but not Denethor, whose despair and grief had overcome his mind.

Clearly Denethor had been using the stone's special properties for some time — extending his vision far beyond those of mannish eyes, but also wrestling in thought with Sauron.

And even though Sauron could not completely overwhelm Denethor's mind, his courage was daunted by knowledge of the vast might of Mordor.

Thus the shadow entered into the capital of Gondor. Nevertheless, and against all hope, the siege was broken. Soon after, Lord Aragorn arrived with a large valour of men from the southern fiefs upon a captured pirate fleet from Umbar.

The forces of the men of the west then utterly defeated Sauron's attack against Minas Tirith, relieving the city and killing virtually all of the invaders.

Gandalf's carefully laid plans and words of wisdom, along with acts of heroism not seen since the elder days, had defeated Sauron's first move.

This would be the culmination of Gandalf's efforts in Middle-earth. Fully aware that the west would stand or fall on the outcome of Frodo's mission, he advised the lords to drive north to the Morannon , thereby drawing Sauron's eye away from Frodo's likely location.

This plan surely would result in a catastrophic loss for the outnumbered army, but it gave Frodo a chance to achieve the quest of Mount Doom.

Led by Gandalf and Aragorn, the army of the West crossed the Anduin and marched north, pausing occasionally to announce their coming and to dispatch small numbers of men to lesser tasks.

Upon arriving at the Black Gate, the forces halted and prepared for battle. As they ordered their companies, the foul Mouth of Sauron rode forth to parley with them; he revealed Frodo's mithril-coat and Arnor-blade and implied that their owner was captured and tortured.

The emissary of Sauron then proposed that the forces of the west surrender; Gandalf however was undaunted, and, seizing his friend's belongings, rejected Sauron's offer.

In shock, the Mouth of Sauron turned back towards the Black Gate, which slowly opened to reveal a vast army of orcs and trolls advancing on the lords of the west.

Sauron's trap was sprung. Yet Sauron himself became the victim of Gandalf's trap. But the power and lure of the ring finally overcame his will and he placed the ring upon his finger, claiming it as his own.

But Gandalf's foresight proved accurate again as the creature Gollum, who had been doggedly following the Ring-bearer, seized the ring from Frodo, and, while celebrating his reunion with "his precious," unwittingly fell into the fires of Orodruin.

The ring was unmade as the fiery mountain erupted. With Sauron gone, his forces scattered like frightened insects; the Men of the West now set upon them with fury.

Gandalf announced the success of the Ring-bearer and the end of Sauron; the quest had been fulfilled. Seeing that victory was achieved, Gandalf then mounted on Gwaihir the Eagle for a third time, and set out to see if Frodo and Samwise had survived the tumults of Mount Doom.

To his great relief, the two were found on the slopes of Orodruin, clinging to life amid the volcanic eruptions. The great quest was over.

In Minas Tirith, Gandalf and the remaining members of the Fellowship reunited. Thus Gandalf ushered in the new age of men. After the coronation and wedding of Aragorn to Arwen , Gandalf left with the rest of the remaining Fellowship on the journey home.

For Gandalf, it was his last long journey in Middle-earth. His errand to Arda had been fulfilled; Sauron had been defeated. He said farewell to his friends one by one until at last only the four Hobbits remained at his side.

At the borders of the Shire he, too, turned away. He left the Hobbits to settle with the Shire, for the shattered pieces of evil still remaining in the world were no longer his concern, and went to talk to "moss gatherer" Tom Bombadil.

What Gandalf did during the next two years is unknown; it is possible that his "long talk" with Bombadil was just that.

He wore Narya openly on his finger, and Shadowfax was beside him perhaps even to take ship with him. His mission was over, and his homecoming after more than years was nigh.

He bade farewell to Samwise, Merry, and Pippin the latter two of whom he had forewarned of the passage , then boarded the ship beside Frodo, Bilbo, Elrond, and was never seen again in Middle-earth.

There, presumably, he dwells still in the gardens of Irmo. In a large way, it was his victory. The name Gandalf means "Elf of the wand" or "Wand-elf", from old northern Mannish.

Most denizens of Middle-earth incorrectly assumed Gandalf was a Man human , although he was really a Maia spirit equivalent to an angel.

Many that live deserve death. And some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them? Then do not be too eager to deal out death in judgment.

For even the very wise cannot see all ends. Tolkien took the name along with the dwarves ' names when he wrote The Hobbit in the s. He came to regret the creation of this "rabble of eddaic-named dwarves, [ He solved the dilemma in by the explanation that Old Norse was a translation of the language of Dale.

The figure of Gandalf has other influences from Germanic mythology, particularly Odin in his incarnation as "the Wanderer", an old man with one eye, a long white beard, a wide brimmed hat, and a staff.

Tolkien states that he thinks of Gandalf as an "Odinic wanderer" in a letter of Gandalf is also similar to Väinämöinen , a Bard in Finnish mythology.

Gandalf's equivalence to Merlin the Magician , of English Mythology, is discussed in episode two of the documentary Looking for the Hobbit , featuring French Arthurian expert Nicholas Mezzalira and Medieval specialist Leo Carruthers.

Tolkien had a postcard labelled Der Berggeist "the mountain spirit" , and on the paper cover in which he kept it, he wrote "origin of Gandalf" at some point.

The postcard reproduces a painting of a bearded figure, sitting on a rock under a pine tree in a mountainous setting.

He wears a wide-brimmed round hat, and a long cloak and a white fawn is nuzzling his upturned hands. Humphrey Carpenter in his Biography said that Tolkien had bought the postcard during his holiday in Switzerland.

However, Manfred Zimmerman discovered that the painting was by German artist Josef Madlener and dates to the late s. Humphrey Carpenter concluded that Tolkien was probably mistaken about the origin of the postcard himself.

Tolkien must have acquired the card at some time in the early s, at a time when The Hobbit had already begun to take shape.

The original painting was auctioned at Sotheby's in London on July 12, for 84, The previous owner had been given the painting by Madlener in the s and recalled that he had stated the mountains in the painting's background were the Dolomites.

Gandalf is often described in The Lord of the Rings as quick to anger, and equally quick to laugh. Both his patience and sense of pity were revealed again and again, extending even to the servants of his enemies.

Keen observers of Gandalf often detected a veiled power, usually revealed in his eyes, which appeared deep and wise.

Tolkien, The Two Towers. Throw yourself in next time, and then you will be no further nuisance. From Wilderland to Western shore, from northern waste to southern hill, through dragon-lair and hidden door and darkling woods he walked at will.

With Dwarf and Hobbit, Elves and Men, with mortal and immortal folk, with bird on bough and beast in den, in their own secret tongues he spoke.

A deadly sword, a healing hand, a back that bent beneath its load; a trumpet-voice, a burning brand, a weary pilgrim on the road. A lord of wisdom throned he sat, swift in anger, quick to laugh; an old man in a battered hat who leaned upon a thorny staff.

Yet she was doomed to wait upon an old man, whom she loved as a father, and watch him falling into a mean dishonoured dotage; and her part seemed to her more ignoble than that of the staff he leaned on.

Fall into nothingness that awaits you and your master! Gandalf fell and has returned and is with us. We may stand, if only on one leg, or at least be left still upon our knees.

The Third Age of the world is ended, and the new age is begun; and it is your task to order its beginning and to preserve what must be preserved.

For though much has been saved, much must now pass away; and the power of the Three Rings also is ended.

And all the lands that you see, and those that lie round about them, shall be dwellings of Men.

For the time comes of the Dominion of Men, and the Elder Kindred shall fade or depart. Not to evil, I think. He may become like a glass filled with a clear light for eyes to see that can.

That was an eye-opener, and no mistake! Nearly singed the hair off my head! Filmography by Job Trailers and Videos. What's New on Prime Video in June.

Over the years, Gandalf became concerned about the weak state of the North. Smaug the Dragon had destroyed both the Kingdom under the Mountain and the town of Dale , and the wizard feared that Sauron might use the desolation around Erebor to regain the northern passes in the mountains and the old lands of Angmar.

Gandalf knew that exiled Dwarf King of Durin's Folk Thorin Oakenshield planned to battle against Smaug , but he knew that it would not be enough.

In , [5] while staying the night in Bree , Gandalf happened across the Dwarf King. The same was intrigued, for he had thought to seek Thorin as well.

They found they were taking the same road for a while Thorin passing through the Shire on his way to the Ered Luin , and they agreed to travel together.

Thorin wanted advice, and Gandalf in turn wanted to discuss the Dragon Smaug with Thorin. Ultimately, Gandalf concocted a plan wherein Thorin could destroy Smaug and recover his family fortune, albeit with a "burglar" of Gandalf's own choosing.

Feeling that a Hobbit should be involved, Gandalf remembered Bilbo Baggins. At first he found only Holman Cotton as Bilbo had left on the occasion of the Elven new year, something that persuaded Gandalf that Bilbo was the right person for the job.

Gandalf then accompanied Thorin and Company to Rivendell. During the journey Gandalf was instrumental in saving the travellers' lives from several calamities.

He saved them from a trio of Stone-trolls , and later obtained the legendary sword Glamdring from their Troll -hoard; Gandalf bore it thenceforth.

He also helped Thorin and Company through the Misty Mountains ; when unknowingly they camped in the Front Porch of the Goblin-town , the same captured the whole company except Gandalf, who surprised them much later, killing the Great Goblin and then leading the Dwarves to the exit.

On their escape out, the Company was saved by the Eagles of the Misty Mountains; Gandalf once had healed the Great Eagle from a poisoned wound, and thenceforth they became friends.

The Eagles picked them up to their eyrie, and the next day they dropped them to the other side of the Mountains.

Meanwhile Thorin's quest was successful: Erebor was retaken and Smaug was killed, [21] but when Gandalf finally arrived to the area, he found the Dwarves of Erebor and the Iron Hills preparing for an attack by the Lake-men and the Elves of Mirkwood.

He was with Bard and Thranduil and revealed his presence trying to reason with Thorin. When the attack was beginning, Gandalf halted them, to warn that the Orcs and Wargs were coming to claim the treasure.

Gandalf had accomplished his immediate goal, which was to destroy Smaug, who could have been used to disastrous effect by Sauron.

As Gandalf and Bilbo passed by the site of their former encounter with the stone-trolls, they made sure to recover the gold of the troll-hoard they had buried before leaving the hobbit on the Shire and leaving.

For the rest of his sojourn in Middle-earth, Gandalf took a special interest in hobbits, and particularly in the Baggins family.

Despite the Council's hopes, Sauron was not weakened by this attack. He had foreseen the move that drove him from Mirkwood, and his retreat was but a feint.

The White Council met for one last time in to debate about the Rings of Power. Saruman quieted his peers claiming to have the knowledge that the One Ring was lost in the Belegaer.

After their meeting, Saruman, jealous and afraid of Gandalf, set spies to watch all his movements; this would affect the peaceful Hobbits, as Saruman thus discovered the existence and noted Gandalf's interest in the Shire, and started sending agents in Bree and the Southfarthing.

In , Gandalf met Aragorn , the hidden Heir of Isildur , and soon became friends with him. From that point on Aragorn and Gandalf often worked together towards a common end - the defeat of Sauron.

During this period Gandalf visited the Shire frequently, especially his friend Bilbo Baggins, and his younger nephew, Frodo.

He noted Bilbo's unusual youthfulness, despite his advancing age; the suspicious "magic ring" that Bilbo had acquired during his adventure began to weigh on his mind.

Gandalf recalled the deceit Bilbo used in originally claiming it for his own -- Bilbo had later admitted to stealing it from Gollum. Gandalf could see that Bilbo was now very preoccupied with the ring and had begun to suspect that the same was indeed a ring of power.

Such un-hobbitlike behaviour aroused his suspicions. In , Bilbo planned what would become known as his Farewell Birthday Party , and at the culmination of the hobbit's speech, Bilbo put on the mysterious ring and disappeared, as a joke on his neighbours.

Later as he was bidding farewell to Gandalf, who had known about his plans to leave, Bilbo began to change his mind about leaving his ring to Frodo, as he had earlier agreed.

When Gandalf tried to persuade him to leave it, Bilbo became hostile and accused Gandalf of trying to steal the ring for his own benefit, which he referred to as his "precious.

This brought Bilbo back to his senses; he apologised, admitted that the Ring had been troubling him lately, and left it behind.

Bilbo and Gandalf bid each other goodbye before Bilbo left the Shire for his journey. He then emphatically warned Frodo not to use it; Gandalf.

Keen now to find out more about Gollum, he sought Aragorn's help to capture him. Studying the records in Minas Tirith , he found the Scroll of Isildur and pieced together the missing history of the One Ring; on his way back to the Shire he got word from the Galadhrim that Aragorn had finally captured Gollum and he went to Mirkwood to meet him.

For days he interrogated him in order to verify what he already knew, in Sauron had tortured Gollum and learned not only of the "magic ring", but also the names "Shire" and "Baggins".

Gandalf left Mirkwood soon after, and left Gollum with the wood-elves of Northern Mirkwood. Upon returning to the Shire, Gandalf immediately went to Frodo and confirmed his suspicions by throwing the Ring into Frodo's hearth fire, which revealed, in Black Speech , the inscription upon the ring.

Gandalf then told a dumbfounded Frodo about the One Ring and its history, and how Sauron would seek to regain it. Instructing Frodo to go to Rivendell with the ring, Gandalf told him to make arrangements to leave the Shire quietly.

While in the Shire, he had a sense of foreboding and in the aftermath of Sauron's attack on Osgiliath Gandalf heard disturbing news about war in Gondor and a Black Shadow.

He started wandering around Eriador hearing news from the refugees who had a fear they couldnot speak about, until he met Radagast the Brown who brought a message of Saruman that he must seek him at once; and a warning that the Ringwraiths are looking for the Shire.

Believing that he would not be able to return to Frodo in time, he wrote a letter, urging him to move as soon as possible for Rivendell, and seek someone "Strider" whose real name is Aragorn, with a riddle to identify him; Gandalf would then try to catch up with them when available.

He also instructed Barliman Butterbur to send the letter to Hobbiton and to expect a Mr. Baggins that will come under the name of "Mr.

He left the inn, but Barliman would forget to send the letter. Soon thereafter Gandalf arrived at Isengard. At their meeting, Saruman at last revealed his desire for the One Ring.

He offered to his "old friend and helper" that they take the Ring for themselves and seize power from Sauron. Gandalf rejected this with horror, and was imprisoned by Saruman on the pinnacle of Orthanc.

Gwaihir , chief of the Eagles, soon arrived and helped Gandalf escape. This lord of horses and Gandalf forged a special bond, and Gandalf made quick use of Shadowfax's incredible strength and endurance.

Gandalf sped to the Shire. Fortunately, Frodo had already left the Shire without waiting for Gandalf, and was seeking the refuge of Rivendell.

Dismayed, he set out for Bree; Barliman apologised to Gandalf for forgetting to send the letter, worried that the hobbits had left with Strider, the suspicious Ranger.

But for Gandalf this was a hope which far exceeded his expectations. After congratulating a puzzled Barliman, and blessing his beer, Gandalf then made for Weathertop , a high point in the region, to observe the surrounding area.

These phenomena were seen by Aragorn and the hobbits from afar, without knowing it was Gandalf. Before leaving, he marked some stones with the certh G for them to find.

Despite their escape, Frodo was stabbed in the process by the Ringwraith leader with a Morgul-knife. Elrond called a council after Frodo was healed to consider the momentous decision regarding the ring.

There Gandalf explained to the others how Saruman had imprisoned him and how the White Wizard was creating his own army of orcs to rival Sauron's.

Elrond and Gandalf advised that the Ring should be destroyed in the fires of Orodruin , where it was made. Others dissented or objected, but eventually submitted to Gandalf's plan.

The relatively small number reflected the realisation by Elrond and the other council members that the quest of Mount Doom would not rely upon strength of arms, but on stealth and good fortune.

Several obstacles stood in the company's way. The vast Misty Mountains had to be crossed, for Gandalf was determined not to lead the company near Isengard.

Gandalf decided to take a southern route to the Redhorn Pass and there to cross the Misty Mountains near Caradhras , thereby traversing the mountain range and avoiding Isengard.

Others in the company were loathe enter the maze, as it was now the lair of orcs and something known only as "Durin's Bane".

At the Doors of Durin on the west side of the mountains, Gandalf, after some delay, spoke the password and led the company into the dark.

Having been in Moria on an earlier perilous errand, he was somewhat familiar with the underground passages. Eventually the party came to the Chamber of Mazarbul , where Gandalf read the Book of Records , which revealed the fate of Balin, the leader of an ill-fated attempt to re-colonise Moria.

Soon after, the party was attacked by orcs, and forced to flee the chamber. By then Gandalf was well aware of their location, and he led the party quickly towards the eastern exit.

You cannot pass," he said. The orcs stood still, and a dead silence fell. You cannot pass. Go back to the Shadow! Gandalf and Legolas immediately realised what it was: a Balrog of Morgoth , a servant of the first dark lord.

In a spectacular display of bravery Gandalf faced the demon and broke the bridge both stood upon, leaving the beast to fall into a seemingly bottomless chasm.

But the Balrog's whip lashed out, and grasped Gandalf by the knees, causing him to fall into the pit. While falling, Gandalf shouted "Fly, you fools" and vanished into the abyss.

Yet Gandalf did not die; he and the Balrog fell for a long time, and wizard was burned by the Balrog's fire. Then they plunged into a deep lake in the depths of the mountain, which Gandalf later said was cold as the tide of death and almost froze his heart.

They fought in the water until finally the Balrog fled into dark tunnels, where the world is gnawed by nameless things, older even than Sauron.

Gandalf pursued the creature until it led him to the spiraling Endless Stair , and they climbed it until they reached Durin's Tower in the living rock of Zirakzigil , the pinnacle of the Silvertine above the clouds.

There they fought , until at last Gandalf threw down his enemy, and the Balrog broke the mountain-side as it fell. Then darkness took Gandalf, and he passed away.

His body lay on the peak. Then darkness took me, and I strayed out of thought and time, and I wandered far on roads that I will not tell Naked I was sent back — for a brief time, until my task is done.

And naked I lay upon the mountain-top. Yet, as he was now the sole emissary of the Valar to Middle-earth, he was granted the power to "reveal" more of his inner Maiar strength.

This naked power that lay within him was seldom used during the remainder of his time in Middle-earth, as his mission was essentially the same: to support and succour those who opposed Sauron.

Nevertheless, when Gandalf's wrath was kindled his "unveiled" strength was such that few of Sauron's servants could withstand him.

Three days later he was found by the windlord Gwaihir, the Lord of the Eagles , who had been sent by Galadriel to find him. He soon learned that Frodo and Sam had left the Fellowship and were attempting the quest of Mount Doom alone.

As Frodo was beyond his assistance now, Gandalf promptly went south to Fangorn Forest , where he met the Three Hunters: Aragorn, Legolas, and Gimli, and gave them messages from Galadriel.

Then he called forth Shadowfax, and rode with them to Edoras. Gandalf by now was keenly aware that the great war to end the age was beginning; if Saruman conquered Rohan then Gondor would be alone with enemies on all sides.

Keep well the Lord of the Mark, till I return. Await me at Helm's Gate. Meanwhile, the Ents along with the hobbits Merry and Pippin moved against Saruman and sent Huorns against the orcs, resulting in the utter ruin of the outer walls of Isengard and the complete annihilation of Saruman's orcs.

There Saruman rejected Gandalf's offer of forgiveness with contempt. Gandalf then broke Saruman's staff and cast him from the Order and the Council.

The wizard's mind had already turned to Gondor and the coming climactic battle in the east. Soon after arriving, Gandalf confronted Denethor II , the Ruling Steward , and learned that he was near despair over the death of his eldest son, Boromir.

Pippin entered the Steward's service in payment of the debt that he and Merry owed, the death of Boromir. Ostensibly they were allies, but the Steward treated him with disrespect and suspicion.

The city was soon besieged by a vast force from Mordor, led by the Witch-king of Angmar. An ill-advised counter attack resulted in Faramir receiving a wound from a poisoned dart; he lay near death inside the Tower.

Still, Gandalf encouraged the men of Minas Tirith to have hope, and dispelled the fear of the Ringwraiths by his very presence.

But Sauron's catapults hurled flaming bolts upon the city; soon the first circle of the city burned unchecked.

Denethor now lost all heart as the city burned and his only remaining son hovered near death; he abandoned his leadership of the city. Gandalf then took it upon himself to direct the defense of the city.

When the gigantic ram Grond destroyed the ancient entrance to the city, Gandalf placed himself alone at the ruined gateway. The Witch-king then appeared in the midst of the blasted gate upon a black horse and threatened Gandalf with death; but Gandalf did not move — seated upon Shadowfax he defied the mightiest of Sauron's minions.

However, the stand-off ended inconclusively, as the morning arrived along with the host of the Rohirrim.

Hearing the horns of the Riders of Rohan, the Witch-king departed. But Gandalf did not pursue his foe, for Pippin brought him news that Denethor was about to commit suicide in the high tower, burning himself and his son Faramir on a pyre like the heathen Kings of old.

Gandalf rushed to stop this madness and was able to save Faramir, but not Denethor, whose despair and grief had overcome his mind.

Clearly Denethor had been using the stone's special properties for some time — extending his vision far beyond those of mannish eyes, but also wrestling in thought with Sauron.

And even though Sauron could not completely overwhelm Denethor's mind, his courage was daunted by knowledge of the vast might of Mordor.

Thus the shadow entered into the capital of Gondor. Nevertheless, and against all hope, the siege was broken. Soon after, Lord Aragorn arrived with a large valour of men from the southern fiefs upon a captured pirate fleet from Umbar.

The forces of the men of the west then utterly defeated Sauron's attack against Minas Tirith, relieving the city and killing virtually all of the invaders.

Gandalf's carefully laid plans and words of wisdom, along with acts of heroism not seen since the elder days, had defeated Sauron's first move.

This would be the culmination of Gandalf's efforts in Middle-earth. Fully aware that the west would stand or fall on the outcome of Frodo's mission, he advised the lords to drive north to the Morannon , thereby drawing Sauron's eye away from Frodo's likely location.

This plan surely would result in a catastrophic loss for the outnumbered army, but it gave Frodo a chance to achieve the quest of Mount Doom.

Led by Gandalf and Aragorn, the army of the West crossed the Anduin and marched north, pausing occasionally to announce their coming and to dispatch small numbers of men to lesser tasks.

Upon arriving at the Black Gate, the forces halted and prepared for battle. As they ordered their companies, the foul Mouth of Sauron rode forth to parley with them; he revealed Frodo's mithril-coat and Arnor-blade and implied that their owner was captured and tortured.

The emissary of Sauron then proposed that the forces of the west surrender; Gandalf however was undaunted, and, seizing his friend's belongings, rejected Sauron's offer.

In shock, the Mouth of Sauron turned back towards the Black Gate, which slowly opened to reveal a vast army of orcs and trolls advancing on the lords of the west.

Sauron's trap was sprung. Yet Sauron himself became the victim of Gandalf's trap. But the power and lure of the ring finally overcame his will and he placed the ring upon his finger, claiming it as his own.

But Gandalf's foresight proved accurate again as the creature Gollum, who had been doggedly following the Ring-bearer, seized the ring from Frodo, and, while celebrating his reunion with "his precious," unwittingly fell into the fires of Orodruin.

The ring was unmade as the fiery mountain erupted. With Sauron gone, his forces scattered like frightened insects; the Men of the West now set upon them with fury.

Gandalf announced the success of the Ring-bearer and the end of Sauron; the quest had been fulfilled. Seeing that victory was achieved, Gandalf then mounted on Gwaihir the Eagle for a third time, and set out to see if Frodo and Samwise had survived the tumults of Mount Doom.

To his great relief, the two were found on the slopes of Orodruin, clinging to life amid the volcanic eruptions. The great quest was over.

In Minas Tirith, Gandalf and the remaining members of the Fellowship reunited. Thus Gandalf ushered in the new age of men.

After the coronation and wedding of Aragorn to Arwen , Gandalf left with the rest of the remaining Fellowship on the journey home.

For Gandalf, it was his last long journey in Middle-earth. His errand to Arda had been fulfilled; Sauron had been defeated. He said farewell to his friends one by one until at last only the four Hobbits remained at his side.

At the borders of the Shire he, too, turned away. He left the Hobbits to settle with the Shire, for the shattered pieces of evil still remaining in the world were no longer his concern, and went to talk to "moss gatherer" Tom Bombadil.

What Gandalf did during the next two years is unknown; it is possible that his "long talk" with Bombadil was just that.

He wore Narya openly on his finger, and Shadowfax was beside him perhaps even to take ship with him. His mission was over, and his homecoming after more than years was nigh.

He bade farewell to Samwise, Merry, and Pippin the latter two of whom he had forewarned of the passage , then boarded the ship beside Frodo, Bilbo, Elrond, and was never seen again in Middle-earth.

There, presumably, he dwells still in the gardens of Irmo. In a large way, it was his victory. The name Gandalf means "Elf of the wand" or "Wand-elf", from old northern Mannish.

Most denizens of Middle-earth incorrectly assumed Gandalf was a Man human , although he was really a Maia spirit equivalent to an angel.

Many that live deserve death. And some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them? Then do not be too eager to deal out death in judgment.

For even the very wise cannot see all ends. Tolkien took the name along with the dwarves ' names when he wrote The Hobbit in the s.

He came to regret the creation of this "rabble of eddaic-named dwarves, [ He solved the dilemma in by the explanation that Old Norse was a translation of the language of Dale.

The figure of Gandalf has other influences from Germanic mythology, particularly Odin in his incarnation as "the Wanderer", an old man with one eye, a long white beard, a wide brimmed hat, and a staff.

Tolkien states that he thinks of Gandalf as an "Odinic wanderer" in a letter of Gandalf is also similar to Väinämöinen , a Bard in Finnish mythology.

Gandalf's equivalence to Merlin the Magician , of English Mythology, is discussed in episode two of the documentary Looking for the Hobbit , featuring French Arthurian expert Nicholas Mezzalira and Medieval specialist Leo Carruthers.

Tolkien had a postcard labelled Der Berggeist "the mountain spirit" , and on the paper cover in which he kept it, he wrote "origin of Gandalf" at some point.

The postcard reproduces a painting of a bearded figure, sitting on a rock under a pine tree in a mountainous setting. He wears a wide-brimmed round hat, and a long cloak and a white fawn is nuzzling his upturned hands.

Humphrey Carpenter in his Biography said that Tolkien had bought the postcard during his holiday in Switzerland.

However, Manfred Zimmerman discovered that the painting was by German artist Josef Madlener and dates to the late s.

Humphrey Carpenter concluded that Tolkien was probably mistaken about the origin of the postcard himself.

Meanwhile, the Ents along with the hobbits Merry and Pippin moved against Saruman and sent Huorns against the orcs, resulting in the utter ruin of the outer walls of Isengard and the complete annihilation of Saruman's orcs.

Gandalf's carefully laid plans and words of wisdom, along with acts of heroism not seen since the elder days, had defeated Sauron's first move.

But the attack against Minas Tirith was only a part of Sauron's plan to devastate the west and make himself the ruler of Middle-earth.

Still commanding vast armies of orcs and men, the Dark Lord soon would move against Gondor again; the remnants of the Edain and their allies had little hope against his almost limitless resources.

This would be the culmination of Gandalf's efforts in Middle-earth. Fully aware that the west would stand or fall on the outcome of Frodo's mission, he advised the lords to drive north to the Morannon, thereby drawing Sauron's eye away from Frodo's likely location.

There, presumably, he dwells still in the gardens of Irmo. In a large way, it was his victory. Gandalf is often described in The Lord of the Rings as quick to anger, and equally quick to laugh.

Both his patience and sense of pity were revealed again and again, extending even to the servants of his enemies.

Keen observers of Gandalf often detected a veiled power, usually revealed in his eyes, which appeared deep and wise. He was alternately affectionate and brusque; he often surprised others with his bluntness when time was of the essence.

Gandalf consistently upbraided foolish behaviour, but also richly rewarded those who acted with good intentions.

Hobbits appealed to him more than to the other Wizards, and he went often to the Shire for respites from his errands. It may be that he was amused by their nature.

It may also be because they were untouched by the great evils of the world, and were more in touch with nature than Men; perhaps their agrarian lifestyle appealed to Gandalf's innate spirit and reminded him of the gardens of Valinor.

The first description of Gandalf is preserved in the initial pages of The Hobbit , written in the early s. Gandalf's fame is alluded to even before his physical description "Tales and adventures sprouted up all over the place wherever he went, in the most extraordinary fashion" , while the protagonist's "unsuspecting Bilbo" impression is that of:.

Although some of the Wise know his true nature, his "wizard-like" appearance causes many to mistake him for a simple conjurer.

After his return his "signature colour" changes from grey to white, for he has been sent back to replace the corrupt Saruman as the chief of the Wizards.

In the book he claims that in some ways he now "was Saruman", or rather Saruman as he should have been. Gandalf demonstrated extensive knowledge of the land and an assortment of magical abilities from trivial to essential.

For example he would use his powers for entertainment, by blowing glowing smoke rings that moved around a room at his direction, and Bilbo Baggins remembered him for his fantastic fireworks displays.

He created blinding flashes and other pyrotechnics to distract the goblins of the Misty Mountains , aiding the dwarves in their escape from Goblin-town.

On the eastern slopes, he turned pine cones into flaming projectiles that threw hot sparks and started fires that would not easily go out.

He was also able to come and go from the presence of Thorin and Company without being noticed. He again displayed his proficiency with pyrotechnics at Bilbo's Farewell Party.

When the Fellowship is attacked by Wargs in Hollin Gandalf speaks words of power to inflame the trees on the hillock where the company had camped.

When angered or aroused for battle, he seemed to grow in height and assume a terrifying aspect. He fought the Balrog of Moria and killed his opponent, although he did not himself survive the battle.

Sent back to Middle-earth as Gandalf the White, he possessed greater charisma and a limited degree of clairvoyance, although he was unable to peer into the land of Mordor to see the progress of Frodo and Sam.

His power and authority had increased so that he could break Saruman 's staff with a spoken command, showing his authority to throw the treacherous wizard out of the order.

Gandalf was the bearer of Narya , the Ring of Fire, and described himself as the "servant of the Secret Fire " and "wielder of the flame of Anor ".

It is not known, though, whether or to what extent his possession of Narya affected his abilities. It is unknown whether Gandalf required his staff to exercise certain powers.

At times it appeared to focus or extend his powers, such as its emanation of light. Gandalf wore it from that time to the end of the Third Age but how he used its powers is not known.

In early manuscripts of The Hobbit , the name Bladorthin was used by Tolkien for the character who later would be named Gandalf. The name Gandalf was instead used for the character known as Thorin in the published works.

Tolkien took the name along with the other dwarves' names when he wrote The Hobbit in the s.

He came to regret the creation of this "rabble of eddaic-named dwarves [ He solved the dilemma in by the explanation that Old Norse was a translation of the language of Dale.

However, Manfred Zimmerman discovered that the painting was by German artist Josef Madlener and dates to the late s.

Tolkien must have acquired the card at some time in the early s, at a time when The Hobbit had already begun to take shape.

Most denizens of Middle-earth incorrectly assumed Gandalf was a Man , although he was really a Maia spirit approximately equivalent to an angel.

However, a less common misconception that occurred during the beginning of his career in Middle-earth was that for someone to be immortal and use as much magic as he did, he must have been an Elf.

Although it soon became apparent to all that he could not be an Elf, as he was old and Elves do not generally age, the nickname stuck with him.

He later gave it as his name to others he met who did not know its original meaning. Baggins, the Hobbit film :. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings, Vol.
