Dora Baggins at Bilbo's Farewell Birthday Party in The Fellowship of the Ring film.

Dora Baggins (TA 2902 (SR 1302) - TA 3006 (SR 1406))[1] was a Hobbit of the Shire.


Dora was the only daughter of Fosco Baggins and Ruby Bolger. Dora was Frodo's aunt and the eldest surviving female relative of Bilbo and Frodo. A guest at Bilbo's Farewell Birthday Party, she received a large waste-paper basket from him, "in memory of a LONG correspondence." A prolific letter-writer, she filled her correspondence with good advice for many years.[2] She never married.

She died five years after Bilbo's party and departure from the Shire at the age of one-hundred and four.[1]
