There's three, actually. Plus a couple prequels. They were published when you were young. [evil] [Razz]
Billy Shakespeare wrote LOTR ?

(actually, it's a while since I read the books, but my memory of the incident in question doesn't have Eowyn do the deed, but one of the hobbits, Merry or Pippin)

Are you fscking immortal or something? Or just undead?

Merry was also involved. He stabs the Witch King in the knee. Eowyn then kills the undead bastard.

Thanks, csk. Alas, I was aware of the fact that I was off by a bit, but didn't feel like Googling, and well, I think I've gotten used to people not reading my posts...so it didn't trouble me much. Accuracy is good, though [Smile] .

(a short time passes)

Two Towers, Book IV, last section of Chapter 4

" Sam drew a deep breath. 'An Oliphaunt it was' he said. 'So there are Oliphaunts, and I have seen one. What a life! But no one at home will ever believe me. Well, if that's over I'll have a bit of sleep.'"

So we were both wrong.

Meh! *shrugs*

I am starting to read LOTR now because after seeing the films it makes me wonder how that can possibly be put into words.

And that was still the coolest part, aswell as the fall of the Witch King. Go Pippin (or Merry? [Confused] )!

wouldnt it be better to read the book before seeing the movies, so you can act all snobby and point out the inconsistencies and eowyn played a bigger part in killing the witch king than merry did, he just assisted her

HEY!

Hello, Eowyn killed the Witch King and Merry helped. No man, not even a man-hobbit could kill the Witch King. Sheesh, the only female character in the whole book (note Arwen comes in only in the end in the books, as a side-note, really) who does what no man can do and you minimalize her contribution?

/me is a big fan of Eowyn as a character -- I have been since the first time I heard the book in the mid-1970's (my Dad read them). [shake head]

That section is very 'MacBeth' (No man born of woman.....).

My (faulty) memory of the event was that it was Merry with his barrow-sword who did the witch-king in, that would make more sense than relying on twisting the wording of his invulnerability.

Don't forget, all the other races use 'men' as the name of our species.

I don't think your memory is as faulty as you think. I reread ROTK before seeing the third movie, and it's mentioned that no ordinary sword could wound the witch-king as much as Merry's barrow-sword could. The fact that Eowyn could get away with it because she was a woman is in there, too.

What a great finale ROTK was as a movie, btw (finally got to see it on Friday night). Think I'll go and see it again a few more times [Big Grin]

The Women of Middle-Earth:

1. Lobelia Sackville-Baggins
2. Goldberry
3. Galadriel
4. Eowyn
5. Arwen
6. (give or take) Shelob

This topic has been brought up quite a bit among my circle of friends. By the way, who was everyone's favorite book and movie characters? My favorite character in the movies, Haldir, wasn't in the books; and my favorite character in the books, Tom Bombadil, wasn't in the movies.(side-note: yes, I just liked Haldir because he was pretty.)

book character would definitely be Tom Bombadil.

i thought Sam was really good in the movies, and the i thought the one liners gimli has in Two Towers and ROTK are kinda funny.
