White Council meetsWhite Council Meets - "In the Tale of Years the entry for 2851 refers to the meeting of the White Council in that year, when Gandalf urged an attack on Dol Guldur but was overruled by Saruman; and a footnote to the entry reads: 'It afterwards became clear that Saruman had then begun to desire to posses the One Ring himself, and hoped that it might reveal itself, seeking its master, if Sauron were let be for a time.'" ~Unfinished Tales (The Hunt for the Ring)
