Lord of the Rings: Why Éowyn Was Able To Kill The Witch-king

Éowyn killed the Witch-king of Angmar in The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, but the movie leaves out some important details about how she did it when the Witch-king is more-or-less immune to mortal weapons. Played by Miranda Otto, Éowyn is introduced in The Two Towers as a citizen of Rohan and the niece of King Theoden. With sexism even more popular than facial hair in Middle-earth, the battlefield is deemed no place for a woman, but Éowyn harbors a burning desire to protect her homeland against the oncoming forces of the Great Eye of Mordor, Sauron, rather than taking shelter and waiting idly by. Along with Merry, now separated from the rest of the Fellowship and his Hobbit pals, Éowyn disguises herself and secretly joins the Battle of the Pelennor Fields outside of Minas Tirith.
