A Weregild was the amount of money you were worth to your "Tribe" or town. If you were killed in combat your family would get payed in how much your Weregild was, by the person who slew him.

HistoryEdit

Significance in Tolkien MythologyEdit

Isildur claimed the Ring as a Weregild for his father's and brother's death despite all councils from the wise to destroy it.[1]
