'''Isengrim Took III''' was the eldest of the twelve children of [[Gerontius]], the [[Old Took]]. Because of his father's famous longevity, Isengrim was already an old hobbit himself when he inherited the title of [[Thain]], being no less than eighty-eight years old. He did not survive long in his new office, and died just ten years after his father. He was succeeded by his younger brother, who became [[Thain]] [[Isumbras Took IV]].

Isengrim Took III was the eldest of the twelve children of Gerontius, the Old Took, and became Thain in S.R. 1320 at the age of eighty-eight when the Old Took died at the end of his seventy-two year reign at the age of 130.

Isengrim became the 27th Thain of The Shire - 15th in the Took line - but due to his old age at the time of becoming Thain, he only stayed in office for ten years, dying at the age of ninety-eight. He left no heir, and as far as we know he never married, so the Thainship passed to his younger brother, Isumbras.
