Frodo Baggins

(TA 2968 - FA ?)
Hobbit of the Shire. Son of Drogo Baggins and Primula Brandybuck. When his parents died in a boating accident in 2980, he was adopted by Bilbo Baggins. Frodo inherited the Ring and the rest of Bilbo's estate in 3001. Gandalf learned the true nature of the Ring and revealed this knowledge to Frodo. In order to save the Shire from Sauron, Frodo left the Shire in 3018 heading for Rivendell, in the company of his servant Samwise Gamgee and his friends Meriadoc Brandybuck and Peregrin Took. During the journey, he encountered the Nazgûl and met Aragorn II, who led the party from Bree to Rivendell. In Rivendell Frodo took the task of destroying the Ring upon himself. Together with the rest of the Fellowship of the Ring, he travelled to Tol Brandir, where the Fellowship was broken. He continued together with Samwise on a perilous journey to Mount Doom, where the Ring was destroyed on the 25th March 3019, ending the War of the Ring.

Due to his wounds received during the Quest, Frodo was never able to find rest in Middle-earth, and passed over the Sea with the Keepers of the Rings in 3021.

Frodo was the author of the account of the War of the Ring as contained in the Red Book of Westmarch.
