[edit] 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.

[edit] 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)

[edit] 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).

[edit] 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)

[edit] 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 Nazg├╗l 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)
