Heribald Bolger

A son of Wilibald Bolger

One of the three children of Wilibald Bolger and Prisca Baggins. Born in the year III 2951, he would have been fifty years old when he attended Bilbo Baggins' famous Birthday Party with his mother, brother Wilimar and sister Nora (Heribald's father Wilibald had died the year before the Party). Like many of the Hobbits, Heribald had a name with military implications: Heribald comes from old words meaning 'army' and 'bold'.
