3. The Last Alliance.
Did you know that The Last Alliance lost? Evidently so. "As the Last Alliance of Men and Elves fell beneath his power", however, Sauron failed to notice "the heroic shadow who slipped in"; Isildur, according to the movie, heroically snuck up behind Sauron and heroically hacked his hand off while he was looking the other way, and so came by the Ring. Hah! Some hero: "Isildur the Backstabbing Sneak".
