Isengrim Took II

Revision as of 10:21, 13 February 2006 by Earendilyon (Talk | contribs)

The twenty-second 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.
