Greatest of the Nazgl, Saurons terrible Ringwraith servants, the Witch-king was once lord of the realm of Angmar. Now he haunts the ruins of Dol Guldur, leading his fellow Wraiths against the united Elves and Istari.
Summoned from beyond the grave by their masters will, the Ringwraiths rose to challenge the White Council in the tangled ruins of Dol Guldur. Spectral, formless beings, the nine Wraiths could not be seen by mortal eyes lest they robed themselves to walk among the living. The Elves and Istari of the White Council perceived beyond the limits of mortal sight, and to them the Nazgl appeared as warriors, clad for battle in black mail and plate.
At the head of the Nine was the Witch-king, mightiest of Saurons servants. In the shadowy realm he stood tallest among the Wraiths, blade in hand, and bearing a helm of twisted black steel.
