The Lord of the Rings: Those Deeply Sad Things About Frodo Baggins


Throughout his quest to Mordor, Frodo had to face many dangers. A challenge that did not spare our hero in the Lord of the Rings trilogy, of which here are the saddest details.

Like Harry Potter with whom The Lord of the Rings shares amazing similarities , the Peter Jackson’s trilogy introduced some memorable characters. However, the story has mostly focused on the twists and turns surrounding Frodo Baggins, the young Hobbit having to leave his native Shire and cross Middle-earth to the top of Mordor in order to to destroy the One Ring. A quest filled with twists and turns but also many tragedies for our hero.

However, the most difficult of them was obviously wearing the Ring. Unlike other characters who stumbled upon this powerful object, Frodo did not seek its possession out of greed. It was given to him and in some ways even imposed on him. An injustice for which he nevertheless accepted responsibility. For such a small person, taking on such a great burden is however heartbreaking, especially since Frodo knew the dangers that his role entailed …
