A stone-troll of the eastern foothills of the Misty Mountains. Brother of Tom and Bert.

In The Hobbit William and his brothers captured Bilbo Baggins and the Dwarves . He was eventually turned to stone after being tricked by Gandalf into remaining outdoors in daylight.

It was William who led the trolls to the woodlands of the Trollshaws, and it was from William's pocket that Bilbo tried pick as his first act of thievery. The Huggins brothers were coarse, foul-mouthed and had a taste for human flesh and strong liquor. It was in their cave that Thorin and Company found the elven swords Glamdring, Orcrist and Sting.
