A [[Hobbit]] of the [[Bolger]] clan, whose marriage to [[Poppy Chubb-Baggins]] meant that she was the last of the [[Chubb-Bagginses]] to bear that family name. Filibert belonged to the same family as the better known Fredegar 'Fatty' Bolger, but while these two were clearly related in some way, no detailed family record for the [[Bolgers]] exists, at least in the canonical works. However, there are records in volume 12 of [[The History of Middle-earth]] suggesting that they were distant cousins, both descended through several generations from one Adalgar Bolger.
