A title given to the Lord of the Nazgûl, the Witch-king of Angmar, after he took up his role as master of the tower of Minas Morgul. The title 'King of Minas Morgul' is particularly associated with the story of Eärnur, the last King of Gondor of the Third Age. The Morgul-king twice challenged Eärnur to face him in single combat, and at last Eärnur foolishly agreed. He passed into Minas Morgul with a small escort, and was never seen again.
