The Death of Boromir

Boromir, a noble warrior of kingly bearing and one of the Fellowship of the Ring, convinced himself that the possession of the One-ring would restore his kingdom. Frodo refused to give it to him and fled. During their ensuing search for the invisible Hobbit, Merry and Pippin were attacked by an Orc patrol. Boromir came to their rescue and despite killing a large number of their assailants, he was pierced with many arrows and slain.
