It is Eowyn who kills the Witch-King of Angmar because she is not a man. According to the Witch-King, no man can kill the Witch-King. The Witch-King mistook his indestructibility on the fact that no man could kill him, he believed it was down to race and not gender. Eowyn was able to use the prophecy against him and kill him. The Witch-King was the leader of the Nazgul. a group of face-less humanoids who were also known as the Ringwraiths, Black Riders, Dark Riders, Nine Riders and simply the Nine.
