Physical Description

Ferumbras Took I was a Hobbit of the Shire.


Ferumbras presumably lived in the first millennium of the Shire Reckoning during which he became Thain, sometime after Isumbras I.

No record of his name exists, but Ferumbras II, the twelfth Thain, was named after him.[1]


Ferumbras is a name from the legends of Roland, a corruption of Frankish fier à bras, "brave arm".


  1. The existence of this character is deduced from the ordinals in J.R.R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings, Appendix C, "Took of Great Smials"
