Biographical Information

Lalia the Fat
LocationGreat Smials
BirthT.A. 2883
DeathT.A. 3002
Physical Description
GenderFemale

Lalia Clayhanger was born in S.R. 1283 and was the wife of Thain Fortinbras Took II who she married at the age of 31 in 1314.

Life

Lalia and Fortinbras had one son, Ferumbras, who was born in T.A. 2916 before Fortinbras became Thain in 2939. In accordance with Took family tradition, Lalia continued to be the head of the family once her husband Fortinbras died in 2980. Ferumbras was unable to find a wife and it is alleged that this was because he could not find someone willing to share a house with Lalia, and Ferumbras was only accorded a small bachelor pad in Great Smials until after Lalia's death.

Lalia long outlived her husband and ruled the Tooks of Great Smials for a further twenty-two becoming a great and memorable matriarch of the family known as Lalia the Great (or least courteously by those with less love for her, Lalia the Fat). She was famous for her tremendous girth, which was rumoured to have prevented her attendance of Bilbo's famous Birthday Party in 3001.

Death

In her latter - and fattest - years it was her immobility rather than age which was the biggest problem for her so she went around in a wheelchair. In particular, she liked to be wheeled to the Great Door in the mornings so she could experience the fresh air.

It was in 3002 she died at the grand old age of 119 after her clumsy attendant Lalia's wheelchair run over the threshold which tipped Lalia down a flight of garden steps. It is rumoured that this attendant was Pippin's sister Pearl Took as she was excluded from the celebrations of Fermumbras's accession, but the family tried to keep to themselves.
