'''Isengrim Took II''' was the twenty-second [[Thain|Thain of the Shire]], the ninth descendant of [[Isumbras Took I]] to hold that title. He lived at the time when pipe-weed was introduced to the [[Shire]]; it was first grown just a few years before Isengrim became [[Thain]]. He is perhaps best known as the founder of [[Great Smials]], which was to become the ancestral home of the [[Took Family]] in the [[Tookland]] of the Shire.
