Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky,
Seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone,
Nine for the Mortal Men doomed to die,
One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.
One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them,
One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.

Total: twenty rings

There appears to be a web site just for this very question no longer exists
The verse in the Lord of the Rings makes explicit reference to 20 Rings of Power: 9 for Mortal Men, 7 for Dwarf Lords, 3 for Elven Kings, and 1 for the Dark Lord. These are the Rings of Power made in the Second Age and concern the events of the Third Age.

The question was not "How many rings of power", it was "How many rings are there in total." Since Aragorn's serpent ring gets a mention, then the number becomes 21!
