Profile

According to the Appendices of the Lord of the Rings, Bilbo was born on September 22, 2890 of the Third Age, son of Bungo Baggins and Belladonna Took. The Bagginses were sub-aristocratic landowners, quite rich and (until Bilbo's adventures) supremely respectable. In 2941, he joined Gandalf the Grey, Thorin Oakenshield and his 12 Dwarves on the quest to reclaim the Lonely Mountain from the Dragon Smaug. This led to an adventure which takes Bilbo and his companions to Rivendell and through the forest of Mirkwood, eventually reaching Erebor.

During his adventures in The Hobbit, Bilbo also found the One Ring, and escaped from Gollum when he won a riddle competition with the question "What have I got in my pocket?" The answer of course being "The One Ring," which Gollum could not guess. However, during the contest, he also revealed the names of Baggins and The Shire to Gollum. Bilbo was the Ring-bearer for 60 years afterward, with no idea of its significance, and it prolonged his life beyond normal limits. He used the Ring to its fullest ability when the expedition was captured by giant spiders in Mirkwood, and also when Thorin and his companions were imprisoned by the Wood-elves. At the Battle of Five Armies, Bilbo used the Ring to prevent himself getting hurt. However, he was struck by a flying rock, leaving him unconscious and invisible, making it difficult for his companions to find him after the battle.

In 2989, Bilbo adopted Frodo, the orphaned son of his first cousin Primula Brandybuck and his second cousin Drogo Baggins, and made him his heir. Though Frodo was actually "his first and second cousin once removed either way",[1] the two thought of each other as uncle and nephew. This article or section does not cite its references or sources. ...


As time passed, Bilbo mostly used the Ring to hide from his obnoxious cousins, the Sackville-Bagginses, when they came to visit. While the Ring didn't corrupt Bilbo as it had its previous owners, it did have some negative effects upon him; over the years, he began to obsess over it, losing sleep and feeling "stretched out and thin" when he was out of its sight. On the night of his 111th birthday party, the opening event of The Fellowship of the Ring, he reacted with panic and suspicion when Gandalf tried to persuade him to leave it. The last straw was when Bilbo referred to the Ring as his "precious" — the same name the wretched Gollum had given it — and Gandalf lost his temper with his old friend, putting some sense into him. Bilbo then admitted he would have liked to be rid of it, and left it behind. In J. R. R. Tolkiens fictional universe of Middle-earth, the Baggins family is a remarkable and rich Hobbit family. ...

In The Lord of the Rings, Bilbo left the Shire on the night of his eleventy-first (111th) birthday, (September 22, 3001), leaving the Ring and all the rest of his estate, including his home, Bag End in Hobbiton, to Frodo. He put on the Ring and vanished from sight at his own birthday party, and was never seen in Hobbiton again. This, coupled with his (for a hobbit) eccentric doings and a flash that Gandalf, in on the joke, set off at the moment of his disappearance, led to him being immortalized in hobbit folklore as "Mad Baggins", who disappeared in a flash and returned with gold and jewels.
