      because he let his guard down against a child.

      Well, he was probably already exhausted from the battle and was caught off guard by the girl's attack, leading to his demise.

    • The "little girl", Finna, was a Nord, raised around fighting and war.  At 12, she would have had  short weapons and defensive combat training for about two years.   She would have beeth between 5' and 5'5" tall and well over 110lbs.   She was a squire/shield maiden to her mother, hence her presence on the battle field.   Remember, she hurled her dead mother's sword at the Snow Prince in a fit of rage fueled by adrenalin.  He had dismissed her as an unworthy opponent after besting her mother and most likely had turned away.  He did not have a shield and only his spear to defend himself and the lore states he had the sword of Jofrior buried in his chest.   No mention of wheather she hit him in the front or back.

    • Yeah the way he died is so ridiculous, only fitting for a story, not reality xD

      It remembers me of the unnimersive and unrealistic death of the Witch-King of Angmar in the Lord of the Rings, but oh well, it's how ppl decide to end some stories even though that wouldn't happen in reality..[http://lotr.wikia.com/wiki/Witch-king_of_Angmar ]

      The way HE died??

      Much like 65.87.226.37 wrote before you, at least his death had cosmic justice to it, an explanation, a grand ending, a storytelling irony and style.

      What about the way SHE died?? Right after she became the hero of the greatest battle against the Snow Elves, that vanquished an entire race and secured the whole of Solstheim for the Nords:

      Merely attacked and rapidly snuffed by road bandits on her lonely path back home. A child!

      Any mention to any burial honours that her people might have done for their hero, perhaps similar to how they honoured their own sworn enemy, which ironically killed so many Nords until only SHE could defeat him?

      None! ... she was likely just thrown aside after they were done looting and stripping her dead body and ended up on a ditch rotting and being eaten away by birds and dogs as wagons and horses passed by

      I have no trouble imagining someone underestimating a child who just witnessed her mother's death and dying at the enraged child's hands as a result.

      Now hang on, because *this* I take issue with: What do you find so unrealistic or unimmersive (really?) about Éowyn killing the Witch-King? They might've hammed it up a bit in the movie in my never-to-be-humble opinion, but, having grown up reading the books, I tend not to take the movies into account when I talk about LotR (and now the Hobbit). It's right on par with Shakespeare's Macbeth (in which no man birthed by a woman can kill him - or something to that effect - and so the man who ends up killing him was cut out of his mother's womb... a Ceasarian section, as it were).

      I think "ridiculous" might be the wrong word to use here. "Dramatic" is probably more appropriate. :)


      (Also: "It remembers me of..." makes no sense whatsoever. It should be, "It reminds me of..." such-and-such. This PSA brought to you by my insatiable inner copy-editor.)

    • I still think that the way he, The Snow Prince, died (and was even honoured by his enemies) was NOWHERE NEAR as "ridiculous" or "dramatic" or unfair or unpoetic as the way SHE, Finna, died.

      I do not comprehend where you got your information from. Her page on the wiki does not state how she died. Could you please state your source?

      (It's me, I registered since then)

      I'll be completely honest with you: It was 5 months ago, I don't remember. For the life of me. I tried to back track and search again and pick my own brain and nothing.

      From what online discussion, or online read, or in-game read, or in-game play (or even which game) did I retrieve the allusion to her being killed by bandits.

      I'll definitely post back here if I remember or find it or come across it again, since even to me it's bugging. Until then, if you wish, feel free to disregard the information for lack of substantiation at this moment, it's fair enough I guess.

      The point still remains though: All books and honours and songs of life and death were to their biggest enemy and killer of Nords and none to their biggest Hero that day.

    • In reply to the OP, ...because that's the way it happens.

      Battles are messy things and, though it may be written differently, the mighty are often felled by the most insignificant of things - and children are not insignificant. In fact, children are particularly dangerous in battle because they do not fight in synchronisation with the kind of rythms which make the Snow Prince's great performance possible. That triumphal pause was expected by the Snow Prince and honoured by the adult Nords - but the child broke the rythm of the battle only because she was a child and not yet privy to the feelings of adversarial comraderie which may develop in some cultures of seasoned veterans.

      That kind of attack, especially from a child, was very much a roll of the dice - but any face of the dice can come up, no matter how unexpected or improbable.

      Isn't possible for Finna to be Babette because Finna was a Nord and Babette is a Breton. Also because Babette was bitten at age 10, and Finna killed the Snow Prince at age 12, so Finna would have had to have been a vampire before she killed the Snow Prince. It is possible for her to be a vampire it just isn't that likely because Babette is the only known child vampire.

    • also Babette was only bitten three hundred years ago and the events we're talking about happened way earlier

    • Everyone here completely ignored the most obvious answer, he was killed to emphasize how Doomed the Snow elves were from the beginning. And how the God of Luck "Sai" was evidently against them.
