The '''Scroll of Isildur''' was a scroll made by [[Isildur]] himself during his short time in [[Minas Tirith]] after the [[War of the Last Alliance]] between {{SA|3441}} and {{TA|2}}. The scroll held Isildur's account of the gaining of the [[The One Ring|Ring]] from [[Sauron]] and described the appearance of [[Ring Verse|an inscription]] around the Ring while it was still hot. The Scroll was stored for millennia in the vaults of that city and according to Gandalf it was probably forgotten after the time of the [[Kings of Gondor]] and nobody, except him and perhaps [[Saruman]], had seen it.

[[Gandalf]] started to believe that [[Bilbo Baggins]]' Magic Ring was the One. In {{TA|3017}} he visited Minas Tirith and studied the scroll. Isildur's description was vital in helping [[Gandalf]] identify the Ring. He visited [[Frodo Baggins]] in [[Bag End]] and testing his ring in the fireplace, confirmed it as the One Ring of Sauron.<ref>{{FR|II2}}</ref><ref>{{FR|I2}}</ref>
