Lobelia Sackville-Baggins née Bracegirdle (T.A. 2918 - 3020, died aged 102) was the second child, and only daughter, of Primrose Boffin and Blanco Bracegirdle.

Lobelia was a renowned character of the Shire, she married Bilbo's cousin Otho Sackville-Baggins, and they had one child together, Lotho, who was born in S.R. 1364.

Her envy of Bag End was well-known, she couldn't wait to inherit it, and was furious when Bilbo made Frodo his heir.However, when Frodo left for Rivendell he sold Bag End to Lobelia, but unfortunately Otho had died by then.

During The War of the Ring, Lobelia was imprisoned in Lockholes for arguing with the Chief's Men. When she came out, Lobelia was popular for the first time for bravely standing up to the Saruman's Men. However, she was crushed to find out her son had died whilst she was in prison.

After the War of the Ring, Lobelia returned to her home village of Hardbottle to live with the other Bracegirdles, giving Bag End to Frodo. When she died, she gave her money to Frodo to be used to help hobbits left homeless by Saruman and her son.
