Years of the Trees First Age Second Age Third Age Fourth Age and Beyond

The son of Otho and Lobelia Sackville-Baggins, who briefly became the leader, or Chief, of the Shire while it was under the control of Saruman during the War of the Ring. His fate remains unknown, but it seems likely he was murdered by Gríma Wormtongue.


Notes

1

The name 'Lotho' is explicitly stated to have had no particular meaning to the Hobbits of the Shire, though doubtless it was intentionally modelled on the form of 'Otho', the name of Lotho's father.
