At first glance, it would seem that the journey of the Ring in The Lord of the Rings doesn’t span that great a period of time. This infographic highlights the history of the ring from forging to destruction: all 4,860 years and 7 ring bearers.

Courtesy of Emil Johansson and the Lord of the Rings Project, we’re treated to a fascinating look at the history of the Ring within the Lord of the Rings universe. Hit up the link below for the full resolution chart.

Jason Fitzpatrick is warranty-voiding DIYer and all around geek. When he's not documenting mods and hacks he's doing his best to make sure a generation of college students graduate knowing they should put their pants on one leg at a time and go on to greatness, just like Bruce Dickinson. You can follow him on if you'd like.

    Wouldn’t there have technically been 9 Ring bearers? If you’re going to count Daegle who had it for such a short time, you would also have to count Sam too.

    Sauron – 1
    Isuldur – 2
    Daegle – 3
    Smaegle – 4
    Bilbo – 5
    Frodo – 6
    Sam – 7
    Frodo – 8
    Smaegle – 9
