The Witch-king of Angmar (before Second Age 2200 - March 15, Third Age 3019) was the chief of the Nazgûl, King of Angmar, and Sauron’s great captain in his wars. A wraith, the Witch-king of Angmar was nearly indestructible, a terrible warrior, and a cunning strategist. As predicted by Glorfindel he fell by the hand of a woman, Éowyn, in the Battle of the Pelennor Fields and his death marked the beginning of Sauron's downfall.

  • 9-1-09 - Within the next day or two we will be upgrading the wiki to a shiny new server. Hopefully downtime will be limited, but please excuse any errors you may encounter.
