Character

Belladonna (Took) Baggins was the mother of Bilbo Baggins. She was from a very large and wealthy family, and had many siblings.

BiographyEdit

Belladonna Took was the "remarkable" ninth child of Gerontius "The Old" Took and Adamanta Chubb. Belladonna had eight older siblings: Isengrim III, Hildigard, Isumbras IV, Hildigrim, Isembold, Hildifons, Isembard, and Hildibrand; and three younger siblings: Donnamira, Mirabella, and Isengar. Though she was technically the second daughter of Gerontius and Adamanta, she was the eldest of the three that survived to adulthood.

Belladonna Took married Bungo Baggins, becoming "Mrs. Bungo Baggins," and together they financed the construction of the Shire's most luxurious and comfortable Hobbit-hole, Bag End. In TA 2890, Belladonna became the loving mother of Bilbo Baggins, her only son and child. She was also well known to the wizard Gandalf. She died in TA 2934, eight years after her husband, leaving Bilbo the master of Bag End.[1][2][3]

She was mentioned in the movie The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, but although the character appeared in the book The Art of The Lord of the Rings about the film, and later in the extended version, the scenes with her in them were cut from the 2001 theatrical release.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected JourneyEdit

In the extended edition, Belladonna appears in a short flashback scene, showing the first meeting between Gandalf and the young Bilbo. The scene was based on Tolkien's appendices to The Hobbit, which were not published until after his death. Belladonna is played by actress Sonia Forbes-Adam, who is married to James Nesbitt who plays Bofur the dwarf.
