Eldest son of Wilibald Bolger

Encyclopedia of Arda Timeline
Years of the Trees First Age Second Age Third Age Fourth Age and Beyond

The eldest of three children born to Wilibald Bolger and Prisca Baggins. Despite his mother being a Baggins, Wilimar descended from a remote branch of the family, and was not closely related to either Bilbo or Frodo. He was born in the year III 2947, and so was just one year older than King Théoden of Rohan. Wilimar and his brother and sister, Heribald and Nora, were present at Bilbo's Farewell Party (Wilimar would have been fifty-four years old at that time).
