Necromancer [In reply to] Can't Post

Good. I like putting something out there and realizing I may go a bit astray.
All that was written that can be found in Tolkien's writings I already now.
I did extend too far in saying "necromancy" refers to spirit-control.
Minas Morgul is the Tower of Sorcery, which was taken by Sauron 61 years
before Gandalf's first visit to Dol Guldur.

It could be that the West gave the name of "Necromancer", just like
the dwarves gave the name" Smaug" which if I recall correctly, means "small hole."
That is a sorry creature that sneaks in small holes. I wonder if the dragon will
call himself that in the movie or take great anger if Bilbo mentions that name.

Elrond's people knew that a Ringwraith survived the Second Age with Glorifindel
mentioned that prophecy or did the elf just think it was a witch, then later the West
learned that it was the First of the Nine, but the prophecy stuck none-the-less.
The White Council may have believed a Ringwraith was at Dol Guldur.
The North Kingdom fell in TA 1975 and 27 years later Minas Ithil fell. Then
King Earnur died in combat.

It seems more enjoyable to me to believe Sauron took ownership of another's identity.

They say the best place to hide something is in the open.
