    It actually appears to me that the broken sword is the riding sword of Gandalf / WK's sword b4 he became a Nazgul. The other sword belongs to one of the orcs of Cirith Ungol, but the orc in the picture does not look to me to be an Uruk Hai, but a black uruk of Mordor, judging by the facial features.

    They already checked wityh Gandalf's riding sword, and it has a straight crossguard, not curved.

    Also, where did this "it was the witchKing's sword before he became the witchking" theory come from? That seems way out of left field for me.

    Justice, I think he means the sword that the man who would one day become the Witchking is wearing. The nine mortal men are shown briefly during the Prologue scene, holding up their Nine Rings. The guy in the middle front is the future Witchking. I assume this is what is being referred to, if not then just ignore me. :stupid:

    I understand what he means, but I want to know where the idea came from. The 9 kings in the prologue weren't armed I believe.

    Thank you Valkrist.
    The sword that the pre-WK carries appears to be the same prop, and therefore could very well be the same sword (story-wise) that Gandalf used abroad when he wasn't carrying Glamdring around. If it is, how he got it and why he kept it is beyond me, though.
