Lalia Clayhanger

The long-lived matriarch of the Took clan

The wife of Thain Fortinbras II, who long outlived her husband and ruled the Tooks of Great Smials for twenty-two years. She was famous for her tremendous girth (she was known in less polite circles as Lalia the Fat), which was rumoured to have prevented her attendance of Bilbo's famous Birthday Party. She died the following year in an unfortunate incident involving a tipping wheelchair and a flight of garden steps.
