In this world, time is divided among globally impactful events, which is why this period is called the Second Age. As the title suggests, The Rings of Power tells the story leading up to Sauron’s ring’s creation. The show also illustrates how Middle-earth struggles to recover from a brutal war. Viewers learn more about other characters and references in the franchise, such as a young Galadriel before she became powerful and how the Kings of Men empire was shattered.
