"The Lord of the Ring
is not Frodo
, but the master of the Dark Tower
, whose power is again stretching out over the world!"
Words of Gandalf
from The Fellowship of the Ring
II 1 Many Meetings
A rare title for Sauron, the master of the One Ring. In fact, it occurs on only one occasion in The Lord of the Rings: in Rivendell, Pippin wrongly granted the title to Frodo, but was quickly corrected by Gandalf with the words shown above.
