Trotter

Revision as of 14:24, 3 June 2006 by Hyarion (Talk | contribs)

In the earliest unpublished versions of J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings, the character who became Aragorn was called Trotter instead of Strider and was a hobbit instead of man. His name was derived from the fact that he had wooden feet after being tortured in Mordor. '('See The History of The Lord of the Rings Vol. VI)
