I see in your eyes the same fear that would take the heart of me. A day may come when the courage of Men fails, when we forsake our friends and break all bonds of fellowship, but it is not this day. An hour of wolves and shattered shields when the Age of Men comes crashing down, but it is not this day! This day we fight! By all that you hold dear on this good earth, I bid you stand, Men of the West!
The chiefest and deadliest of Sauron’s servants, the Witch-king ruled long after his master’s fall and claimed Angmar as his kingdom. He ruled from Carn Dum, seeking to destroy the realm of Arnor and all but succeeded in his task. Later claiming Minas Morgul, once Minas Ithil, the Witch-king campaigned against Gondor and sought once more to overthrow the the kingdoms of Men. The greatest foe unto the Free Peoples of Middle-earth, he was slain by Eowyn of Rohan, fulfilling a prophecy made by Glorfindel at the Battle of Fornost an age ago.
