Stone-giants are a sub-race of giants that appear in The Hobbit.


Earlier legendsEdit

During the development of LOTR, Tolkien wrote notes suggesting that the difference between Trolls and Ents, where that Trolls were stone inhabited by a goblin-spirit. Thus trolls were stone-giants, and Ents were the tree-giants/Tree-folk (perhaps same thing as Tree-men giants mentioned in final published The Fellowship of the Ring).[1]
