Otho Sackville-Baggins (T.A. 2910 - 3012, died aged 102) was the husband of Lobelia Sackville-Baggins.

History

Otho was the only child of Longo Baggins and Camellia Sackville.[1] Through his mother, he was the head of the Sackville Family, so he adopted the double surname out of custom.[2] He was also second in line to patriarchy of the Baggins Family, and would have been Bilbo Baggins' heir were it not for his adoption of his cousin Frodo. This did not sit well with Otho and his wife, Lobelia, as they both dearly wanted to live in Bag End.[3]

Otho died in S.R. 1412. Lobelia eventually did come into possession of Bag End, and moved in with her son Lotho, six years after Otho's death.[4]

Etymology

The name Otho was meaningless in contemporary Hobbitish Westron. It represented an original name Otha.[5]

Portrayal in Adaptations

1981: The Lord of the Rings (1981 radio series):

John Livesey provides Otho's voice.

2001: The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (Extended Edition)

Peter Corrigan plays Otho, though he does not have any lines.
