Ringwraiths, also known as Nazgûl or Black Riders, are minifigures from The Lord of the Rings released in May 2012.

Description[edit]

The Ringwraiths wear a black hood and a tattered cloak. They have a blank black head, and a black torso which printing has a robe design. The back of their torso features a continuation of his robe printing. Their legs, arms, and hands are also coloured in black.

Background[edit]

The Ringwraiths were originally nine kings of Men, tempted one by one by the Dark Lord Sauron using his One Ring over their nine rings, through betrayal, greed, suppression, or alliance. They resided in the cursed fortress of Minas Morgul ruled by the first Nazgûl, the Witch-king of Angmar. They were assigned to hunt down Frodo Baggins and reclaim the One Ring for their master Sauron. They tracked Frodo, Aragorn and company across the Shire, finally finding them at Weathertop where Aragorn defeated them using fire. However, not before the Witch-king stabbed Frodo with a cursed Morgul blade. Arwen, the daughter of Elrond, then took the fading Frodo to Rivendell to be saved by her father, and the Nazgûl steeds were swept away by the waters of Bruinen. After this, the Nazgûl reverted to riding the dragon-like Fell Beasts. The Witch-king was later defeated by Éowyn and Merry at the Battle of the Pelennor Fields as justice for killing King Théoden. Khamùl and the other remaining seven Nazgûl were killed when the Ring was destroyed, caught in the fire storm of Mount Doom.

LEGO.com Description[edit]

Red2x2.png This is a description taken from LEGO.com. Please do not modify it. Ringwraith™

Ringwraiths, also known as the Nazgûl, are dark phantoms - neither alive, nor dead. The Ringwraiths were once great kings of Men, all given Rings of Power. Corrupted by power, and the One Ring, their bodies have faded into broken shadows and their minds and souls have been destroyed by their constant need to follow the Ring. They are most powerful in the dark. Daylight weakens them, they cannot see well, and they are not able to move through or across running water.
