This article is surprisingly good.  It's good raw material for an FA, maybe with a little more segmentation. --[[User:Theoden1|Theoden1]] 15:41, 1 June 2008 (EDT)
 
 
:It's very good. And sourced! 3 more votes to go. -- [[User:Ederchil|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|ElfMaven}}

I would like to propose moving this article to "Witch-king". --{{User:Mith/sig}} 13:32, 12 October 2010 (UTC)

== Angmar ==
 
 
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: An Unexpected Journey|The Hobbit]]'', [[Elrond]] specifically refers to '''Angmar's tomb''' when [[Gandalf]] produces the recovered [[Morgul-knife|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.--[[User:M-Greg|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. --{{User:Ederchil/sig}} 10:15, 23 December 2012 (UTC)
