In "The Return of the King", Monarch of the land of Rohan, King Theoden, fell under the power of the wizard Saruman through the slithering machinations of his servant Grima. Only through the intervention of Gandalf the White was Theoden exorcised of Saruman's corrupting influence and “the black staff fell from king's hand clattering on the stones. He drew himself up, slowly, as a man that is stiff from long bending over some dull toil. Now tall and straight he stood, and his eyes were blue as he looked into the opening sky.” Theoden himself realized that “dark have been my dreams of late … I would now that you had come before, Gandalf”. Theoden’s transformation is highly symbolic as it reveals superiority of Good over Evil.
