Ilberic Brandybuck

The second son of Seredic Brandybuck

A member of a lesser branch of the Brandybuck family, descended from Gorbadoc Brandybuck, who was Ilberic's great-grandfather. Ilberic was the second son of Seredic Brandybuck, and through his father he was a distant cousin of both Meriadoc Brandybuck and Frodo Baggins. His mother was Hilda Bracegirdle, and so he would also have been related to Lobelia Sackville-Baggins (who was born a Bracegirdle). Ilberic was present, with his entire family, at Bilbo's famous Farewell Party: he would have been just ten years old at that time.
