Herugar Bolger

The son of Rudigar Bolger

The only son of Rudigar Bolger and Belba Baggins, Herugar was born in the Shire some five years after Bilbo Baggins. He married Jessamine Boffin, a granddaughter of the Old Took, and had a single son of his own, named Odovacar. Herugar was the grandfather of two characters who had some significance to the members of the Fellowship of the Ring: Fredegar Bolger acted as a decoy for Frodo after he left the Shire, while Estella Bolger later became the wife of Meriadoc Brandybuck.
