"All that I am: anger, cruelty, vengeance, 8 attack - I bestow upon you, my chosen knight."

The Lich King sat dormant for several years while storms raged across Northrend and his minions constructed Icecrown Citadel around the Frozen Throne. While the Lich King dreamt, the various personas in his mind - the death knight Arthas Menethil, the orc shaman Ner'zhul, and Matthias Lehner, the personification of the remnants of Arthas's humanity - fought for influence and control over the entity.

The Lich King is a minion for use by any class. He was introduced in the Knights of the Frozen Throne expansion.
