Physical Description
GenderMale
Fortinbras Took II was the grandson of Gerontius, the Old Took, who inherited the title of Thain from his father, Isumbras IV, on his death in T.A. 2939.

Before he became Thain, at 36-years-old he married Lalia Clayhanger in T.A. 2914- who was to become a famous matriarch of the Took clan, and known as Lalia the Great - and had one son, Ferumbras Took III who was born in T.A. 2916.

He became Thain, just two years before Bilbo Baggins left Hobbiton for his adventures in The Wild, in T.A. 2939 (S.R. 1339). Fortinbras was Thain for 41 years, and after his death in T.A. 2980 at the age of 102 he was succeeded as Thain by his son Ferumbras; however, in accordance with Took tradition, Lalia continued to be head of the family until her death in T.A. 3002.

Etymology

Fortinbras is of French, and ultimately Latin, origin - as are the names of other Thains - and means "strong-armed". It comes from the French fort and Latin fortis meaning "strong", and the French bras, from the Latin brachium, meaning "arm". "Fortinbras" is also the name of two characters in William Shakespeare's tragedy Hamlet.
