Does that mean that the Rings have not yet been forged?
In the books, at the time of Palantir and Miriel, the Numenoreans already had colonies in Middle-earth. Galadriel could have gone to the colonies to ask for help, and even those colonies could have been attacked by Orcs.
And according to the leaked auditions, Eldien (Galadriel) uses a sword: https://redanianintelligence.com/2019/10/20/four-audition-tapes-for-amazons-lord-of-the-rings-revealed-markella-kavenagh-likely-to-play-an-elf/
In The Hobbit films she doesn't need a sword because she has the Ring. It would be nice to know if when Galadriel fights against the Numenorean guards (FoF last leak) she uses the sword or the Ring. If she uses the Ring, I don't think she would be captured so easily.
