King of the Dead

   Lord of the Shadow Host.
   The king of the oath-breaking Men of the White Mountains, who swore allegiance to Isildur in the War of the Last Alliance. For breaking his oath, he and his people were cursed to walk the Paths of the Dead until they could redeem themselves, which they achieved by aiding Isildur's heir Aragorn in the War of the Ring.
