The mountain was long inhabited by a group of Orcs led by their chief (until the year 2747 of the Third Age), Golfimbul. They terrorized some of the inhabitants of eastern Eriador which included the Shire.
In TA 2747, the growing troops of goblins from Mount Gram attacked the Shire and so caused the Battle of Greenfields. Those orcs fell in battle against Bandobras Took and their leader Golfimbul was killed by him.
Portrayals in adaptationsEdit
Mount Gram itself is not accessible in The Lord of the Rings Online, but the foot of Mount Gram in the Ettenmoors serves as a home base for the forces of Angmar in the game's player versus monster player area.
And in The Lord of the Rings: The Battle for Middle-earth II, Gorkil the Goblin King had his fortress in the Ettenmoors, being the King of Mount Gram after Golfimbul; told of in the Evil Campaign.
