Giltub was an Ogre who lived in the Grey Mountains of Rhovanion. Unlike many Ogres, Giltub wa slow and lazy, and had trouble keeping up. Even while teased, Giltub could get very aggressive and kill those who laughed at him. He was among many Ogres that served as elite soldiers in Bolg's army during the Battle of Five Armies. His slowness and laziness led to his death at the hands of Bard Bowman, who shot him directly in the chest with a bow and arrow.
