This is the name that Sméagol had been given after he found the One Ring. He lived in a cave under the Misty Mountains until a short time after Bilbo Baggins found the Ring. After that he wandered Middle-Earth in search of the Ring. Eventually he was captured on the borders of Mordor. After revealing what he knew, Gollum managed to escape.
After the breaking of the Fellowship, Gollum guided Frodo and Sam through the Dead Marshes and into Mordor. Although the creature intended betrayal several times, it was only through his actions that the One Ring was destroyed, along with Gollum himself.
