'''Lord of the Ring''' was a rare title for [[Sauron]], the master of the [[One Ring]]. In fact, it occurs only once in ''[[The Lord of the Rings]]'': in [[Rivendell]], where [[Pippin]] wrongly proclaimed [[Frodo Baggins|Frodo]] as such, but was quickly corrected by [[Gandalf]].  Its more famous appearance is in the title of Tolkien's narrative, with "rings" in the plural, indicating the other [[Rings of Power]].
