Magical Rings and Their Mystical Powers

(Read the article on one page)

Treasures are not always large gold hoards or mountains of precious stones. A treasure can also be a highly precious artifact such as the Ark of the Covenant, the Spear of Longinus, and the Sword of Nuada, the Holy Grail or a small, but very precious ring with magical powers.

King Solomon’s Magical Ring

According to legend, the famous king Solomon had a very valuable gold ring. The ring was not only precious, but also magical. With it, Solomon could supposedly control spirits and demons. Out of all his treasures, this ring is regarded as the most mystical.

It is said that one day the king lost the precious ring. He had lost it in the waters of the River Jordan. Solomon considered the ring lost forever until a fisherman returned it to him. He had found the ring inside the body of a fish. The precious magic ring is said to be buried alongside the body of King Solomon. However, nobody has found Solomon’s tomb yet. According to legend, the one who finds the ring will become the ruler of the world.

Howard Carter’s Ring of Protection

Howard Carter is the archaeologist who, in 1922, discovered the tomb of Tutankhamen. At the time, everybody was surprised because of the fact that the curse of King Tut’s tomb did not affect the archaeologist. It is said that Carter had a ring found in Assuan in the tomb of a priest called Jua. The ring was bought in 1860 by the Egyptologist marquis d’Agrain.

The ring had geometric figures covering it such as three straight lines and triangles. The figures on the ring had been arranged according to the principles of esoteric knowledge. The design was meant to protect a person from danger, curses, and black magic. Today, the ring is known as “the ring of Ra” and it is believed that it was originally designed by the people of the lost city of Atlantis. According to the same theory, Egyptians are regarded to be the descendants of these people. As for the ring, an explanation is that it follows the principles of radionics which can have positive or negative effects on the individual who wears it.

Charlemagne and the Love of a Magic Ring

Said to be influenced by the power of a magic ring, Charlemagne fell deeply in love with a German woman. He loved her so much that he even began to neglect his affairs of state to be with her. However, one day, the woman died. Charlemagne kept worshiping her dead body which he refused to bury. One day, when Charlemagne was away, the Archbishop Turpin entered the bedroom. There, he noticed a precious ring on the corpse which he took with him.

As soon as the ring was removed, the dead body began to rot. Upon Charlemagne’s return, all he found was an awful smelly corpse. He had the body buried, but another strange thing began to happen. Charlemagne began to direct his passion towards the Archbishop Turpin. Turpin had the ring and thought that something was not right about it. Therefore, in order to escape Charlemagne’s advances, he threw the ring in a lake. According to legend, Charlemagne than fell in love with the lake and ordered a magnificent palace to be built near it. This was the city of Aix-la-Chapelle, where Charlemagne was buried upon his death.

Genghis Khan’s Ring

Genghis Khan knew how to take advantage of Mongolian magic. In the 12th century, he reigned over the great Mongolian Empire and some believe this is due to a powerful magic ring. The ring had a ruby engraved with a magic symbol and it was worn by both Genghis Khan as well as by his nephew, Kublai Khan. They always wore it on the right hand, on the forefinger.
