Ferumbras Took II was a Thain of the Shire.


Ferumbras was the oldest son of Thain Isumbras III, though in fame he was outlived by his younger brother, Bandobas, who moved to the Northfarthing and won the Battle of Greenfields. Ferumbras instead became Thain, and was succeeded in turn by his son Fortinbras.[1]


Ferumbras is an actual name, a corruption of French fier à bras, "brave arm".
