Fosco Baggins

One of Frodo Baggins’ grandfathers

The only son of Largo Baggins. He married Ruby Bolger, and together they had three children: Dora, Drogo and Dudo. Drogo was in turn the father of Frodo Baggins, making Fosco the paternal grandfather of the Ring-bearer (Frodo's other grandfather was Gorbadoc Brandybuck of Brandy Hall).
