If I remember correctly, the Nazgul is an ancient demon that lives in the Mines of Moria... from Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring.... it's what took Gandalf... it had the fiery whip and sword.

The Nazgul are the spectres of the ring(not sure how they are called in English)

In England (You know the place where the book was written and based on :D ) They are called black riders or ring wraths when not called Nazgul. They were kings who Sauron gve rings to and ensnared.

Nazgul: A word from the Black Speech, usually translated 'Ringwraith'; the name of the nine Men corrupted by the power of Sauron's Nine Rings, and transformed into his dark and deathless servants.

Tolkien specifically said he didn't base LotR on England or the surrounding provinces. Remember that he wrote it during Nazi advances; he didn't want to be remembered as a patronizer.

See, most people compare WW2 to LotR. England being Westernesse, Germany being Mordor, the Nazgul being the Luftwaffe; I've heard it all.

You're right. My bad.
It's been so long since I've read the books that I can't remember which proper names go with which characters. :)

This is what a Nazgul looks like... The robes, what a nightmare to model and animate nicely!!

Who says they look like that. Not me for certain. Just because they look like that in the film???? HA- I am not so easily brainwashed.
