Bandobras "Bullroarer" Took was a Hobbit of the Shire and the Hero of the Battle of Greenfields.

BiographyEdit

Bandobras Took was the second son[1] of Thain Isumbras III, and the Great-Grand-Uncle of Bilbo Baggins. He was born in TA 2704. Bandobras is noteworthy among Hobbits for his exceptionally large stature, being four feet, five inches tall and able to ride a horse. He was the tallest Hobbit on record until the Ent-draughts taken by Meriadoc Brandybuck and Peregrin Took made them the tallest Hobbits in the history of the Shire.[2]

Bandobras also gained fame for leading the Hobbits at the Battle of Greenfields in TA 2747 when goblins from Mount Gram in the Misty Mountains invaded the Northfarthing. According to the narrative in the book The Hobbit, during the battle Bandobras charged the ranks of the goblins of Mount Gram and with a wooden club knocked the goblin chieftain Golfimbul's head clean off, sending it sailing a hundred yards through the air and down a rabbit-hole, thus (according to Tolkien's novel The Hobbit) winning the battle and inventing the game of Golf at the same time.

Bandobras was given the nickname "Bullroarer". From him were descended the North-tooks of Long Cleeve, where Peregrin Took's wife Diamond of Long Cleeve came from. Bandobras died in TA 2806.

Portrayal in adaptationsEdit

Peter Jackson's The HobbitEdit

In Peter Jackson's film adaptation The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, Bilbo Baggins has a portrait of him in Bag End. Gandalf speaks briefly about him and how he invented golf, though it is implied that some historical embellishment may be at work.
