Dodinas Brandybuck

A son of Master Gorbadoc

The fourth of Gorbadoc Brandybuck's seven children, Dodinas was born sometime between III 2908 and III 2913 (1308 and 1313 by the Shire-reckoning). Little is known of his life, and his main claim to history is in his relations to others. Through his elder brother Rorimac, he was an uncle of Meriadoc Brandybuck, and through his younger sister Primula he was also an uncle of Frodo Baggins. He is not recorded as being present at Bilbo Baggins' Farewell Party, suggesting that he did not survive until the year III 3001 when it was held.
