Morgul-knife which almost killed the hobbit. After that failure he and
the other ringwraiths were forced to return to Mordor. There the

At Pelennor he slew the Lord of Rohan Théoden with his mace. For
that he was challenged by Théoden´s daughter Eowyn which
mistook for a man. He proclaimed that no man was fated to kill him and

"work of necromancy, spectre".
