Physical Description

Gorbadoc "Broadbelt" Brandybuck was a Hobbit of the Shire.


Gorbadoc was the son of Marmadoc Brandybuck and after his father's death in S.R. 1310, he became Master of Buckland.

He married Mirabella Took, and had in all seven children: Rorimac, Amaranth, Saradas, Dodinas, Asphodel, Dinodas and Primula.[1]


His name 'Broadbelt' derives from his generous table and waistline.[2]
