Bilbo's claim to the Arkenstone
#15
(September 28th, 2019, 05:34 PM)Michael Wrote: Gandalf told Frodo in Bag End that Sauron didn't know the Ring had survived (or remained in Middle-earth, at least) until he captured Gollum. The searchers near the Gladden Fields might have been looking for clues (probably Isildur's remains, which Saruman found and discarded or destroyed according to "The Hunt for the Ring").
Saruman did not share this information with the White Council (says the next line in the Tale of Years after my quote, infra).  Therefore, Gandalf would not have known of it at the time that he spoke to Frodo.  Indeed, he admits, at the Council of Elrond, to being fooled by Saruman on this point.
"Never ask an Elf for advice, for he will say both 'Yes' and 'No'." - Frodo Baggins to Gildor Inglorion
