Physical Description
GenderFemale

Hildigard Took was the first daughter, and second child, of Thain Gerontius, the Old Took and Adamanta Chubb. We know very little about her life, other than she "died young". [2]

Birth date

In The History of Middle-earth volume 12, The Peoples of Middle-earth, an earlier version of the Took family tree gives Hildigard's birth and death dates as 1235 and 1255 respectively, but this may no longer be accurate.

We know from the birth of her siblings Isengrim and Isumbras that she must've been born between S.R. 1232 and 1238, and more specifically around 1235 based on the average age gap between he 11 other siblings.
