Andy Serkis: Gollum, The Witch-king
Home - Login - Contact. Event Type: Genealogical. Description: An event in the Battle of the Pelennor ; see that entry for an overview: But lo! Dark fell about him Snowmane wild with terror stood up on high, fighting with the air, and then with a great scream he crashed upon his side: a black dart had pierced him. The king fell beneath him. The great shadow descended like a falling cloud. And behold! Down, down it came, and then, folding its fingered webs, it gave a croaking cry, and settled upon the body of Snowmane, digging in its claws, stooping its long naked neck.
Upon it sat a shape, black-mantled, huge and threatening. A great black mace he wielded. The knights of his house lay slain about him Yet one stood there still: Dernhelm the young, faithful beyond fear; and he wept, for he had loved his lord as a father.
Right through the charge Merry had been borne unharmed behind him, until the Shadow came; and then Windfola had thrown them in his terror Merry crawled on all fours like a dazed beast, and such a horror was on him that he was blind and sick He dared not open his eyes or look up. Then out of the blackness in his mind he thought that he heard Dernhelm speaking; yet now the voice seemed strange, recalling some other voice that he had known.
Leave the dead in peace! Or he will not slay thee in thy turn. He will bear thee away to the houses of lamentation, beyond all darkness, where thy flesh shall be devoured, and thy shrivelled mind be left naked to the Lidless Eye.
Thou fool. No living man may hinder me! It seemed that Dernhelm laughed You look upon a woman. You stand between me and my lord and kin. Begone, if you be not deathless! For living or dark undead, I will smite you, if you touch him. Very amazement for a moment conquered Merry's fear. He opened his eyes and the blackness was lifted from them. There some paces from him sat the great beast A little to the left facing them stood she whom he had called Dernhelm.
But the helm of her secrecy had fallen from her, and her bright hair Her eyes grey as the sea were hard and fell, and yet tears were on her cheek. A sword was in her hand, and she raised her shield against the horror of her enemy's eyes. For into Merry's mind flashed the memory of the face that he saw at the riding from Dunharrow : the face of one that goes seeking death, having no hope. Pity filled his heart He clenched his hand.
She should not die, so fair, so desperate. At least she should not die alone, unaided. The face of their enemy was not turned towards him, but still he hardly dared to move Slowly, slowly he began to crawl aside; but the Black Captain , in doubt and malice intent upon the woman before him, heeded him no more than a worm in the mud.
Suddenly the great beast beat its hideous wings Still she did not blench: maiden of the Rohirrim , child of kings A swift stroke she dealt, skilled and deadly. The outstretched neck she clove asunder, and the hewn head fell like a stone. Backward she sprang as the huge shape crashed to ruin, vast wings outspread, crumpled on the earth; and with its fall the shadow passed away.
A light fell about her, and her hair shone in the sunrise. Out of the wreck rose the Black Rider , tall and threatening, towering above her. With a cry of hatred that stung the very ears like venom he let fall his mace.
Her shield was shivered in many pieces, and her arm was broken; she stumbled to her knees. He bent over her like a cloud, and his eyes glittered; he raised his mace to kill. But suddenly he too stumbled forward with a cry of bitter pain, and his stroke went wide, driving into the ground. Merry's sword had stabbed him from behind, shearing through the black mantle, and passing up beneath the hauberk had pierced the sinew behind his mighty knee.
Then tottering, struggling up, with her last strength she drove her sword between crown and mantle, as the great shoulders bowed before her. The sword broke sparkling into many shards. The crown rolled away with a clang. But lo! Shapeless they lay now on the ground All fields are optional. Dates default to the start of an event if it is multi-day.

So terrible was the cry that for a moment all stood still, and yet when it had passed, suddenly their hearts were lifted up in such a hope as they had not known since the darkness came out of the East ; and it seemed to them that Places Pelennor Field Go to Places.

Éowyn: A Fearless Female Warrior (The Lord of the Rings Personality Series)
I can recall back in , when The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King , was first released, standing up and cheering in the theatre as Eowyn, one of the few female characters in the story, heroically vanquished the Witch King. I carried this image with me for a long time as an adolescent. It was one of the first times I had seen a woman on screen represented for her bravery and not just her beauty. Unfortunately, the empowered feminism I so adamantly celebrated this movie for at the age of 9 has slowly disintegrated, as I have grown older and continued in my obsession of The Lord of the Rings. In both having read the books multiple times, as well as having seen the trilogy and the extended editions enough to last a lifetime, I have slowly began to pick apart how Peter Jackson failed to represent strong, well-developed female characters in his adaptations of J. In adapting the story from book to film, Peter Jackson and his writers do a disservice to strong female characters such as Eowyn. They fail to recreate her dimensional character in their modern interpretation where J. Tolkien, a WWI vet from a devout Catholic background, surpassed them.

Tolkien 's The Lord of the Rings. She is a noblewoman of Rohan who calls herself a shieldmaiden. This fulfils the Macbeth -like prophecy that he would not be killed by a man. The critic David Day considers Tolkien's a better solution than Shakespeare 's. When she was only seven years old, her father was killed fighting orcs , and her mother died of grief. She longed to win renown in battle—especially since she was royal—but being female, her duties were reckoned to be at Edoras.
