What was the little gremlin's name in Lord of the Rings that was obsessed with 'his PRECIOUS'?
The roughly 3' 8" hobbit from the Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, was called Gollum. He was also known as Stinker, Slinker, and Trahald, though his formal pre-Gollum name was Smeagol. His obsession with the Ring pushed him to commit murder when Deagol refused to give him the Ring as a birthday present, strangling him in order to take the ring (his Precious) for himself. It is believed that he was born in the early to mid 2400s of the third age, and died on March 25, 3019 of the Third Age.
