The Fall of Boromir

Boromir, a noble warrior of kingly bearing and one of the Fellowship of the Ring, convinced himself that possession of the One-ring would restore his kingdom. When he demanded it, Frodo refused him and, in fright, put it on. The fellowship sent out search parties to find the now invisible hobbit, during which Merry and Pippin were attacked by Orcs. Boromir came to their rescue and despite killing a large number of their assailants, was pierced with many arrows and slain.
