Isengrim Took III

The eldest son of the Old Took

Thains of the Shire

The eldest of the twelve children of Gerontius, the Old Took. Because of his father's famous longevity, Isengrim was already an old hobbit himself when he inherited the title of Thain, being no less than eighty-eight years old. He did not survive long in his new office, and died just ten years after his father. He was succeeded by his younger brother, who became Thain Isumbras Took IV.
