Motion Picture Picture

Can we get a picture of The Witch-King in the film adaptation of The Return of the King? -Lord Aragorn1414 14:39, 18 July 2006 (EDT)

Having added a movie adaptation section, I second the motion. --Ted C 11:53, 20 October 2006 (EDT)

Definitely need a new picture, this one is way to childish. Pand.

Featured Article?

This article is surprisingly good. It's good raw material for an FA, maybe with a little more segmentation. --Theoden1 15:41, 1 June 2008 (EDT)

It's very good. And sourced! 3 more votes to go. -- Ederchil 15:57, 1 June 2008 (EDT)

added hobbit again

The WK was not killed "by a woman" but by two creatures who were not "man": a woman AND a hobbit, so I added hobbit back into the specific reference to Macbeth. Unsigned comment by ElfMaven (talk • contribs).

Moved to Witch-king

I would like to propose moving this article to "Witch-king". --Mith (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 13:32, 12 October 2010 (UTC)

As no-one's objected, I shall be doing this this afternoon. --Mith (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 11:54, 13 December 2010 (UTC)
Didn't notice this, but no objections. -- Ederchil (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 14:06, 13 December 2010 (UTC)


I know in Tolkien's canon the Witch-king has no true name and is only ever referred to by various titles and labels, and that calling him Angmar as a name or nickname has simply been a Ringer force of habit with no canon backup to it, but I believe it is now canon in Jackson's continuity that Angmar is the name of the kingdom as well as a name for the Nazgûl himself. In The Hobbit, Elrond specifically refers to Angmar's tomb when Gandalf produces the recovered Morgul blade, and he cannot have been referring to the kingdom itself. I think this warrants a mention of the Witch-king being known as Angmar, after the name of his fallen kingdom, in addition to his other established titles, in the Jackson canon.--M-Greg 07:44, 23 December 2012 (UTC)

Irrelevant. Royalty and nobility have often, in the past, been referred to by their title as if it were there name. --Ederchil (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 10:15, 23 December 2012 (UTC)
