Revision as of 22:50, 24 November 2005 by Hyarion (Talk | contribs)

The son of Thain Fortinbras II and Lalia Clayhanger, who inherited the Thainship from his father. It was during his time as Shire-thain that Bilbo Baggins' famous Birthday Party was held, and though he is not mentioned in detailed accounts of the Party, we do know that he was present. He died in the year T.A. 3015, just three years before Frodo set out from the Shire. He left no heir, and the succession passed to his distant cousin Paladin.
