Drogo Baggins was a Hobbit of the Shire and the father of Frodo Baggins, who was one of the many bearers of the One Ring.


Drogo Baggins was the eldest son of Fosco Baggins and was the brother of Dora and Dudo Baggins. He married Primula Brandybuck and they had only one child, Frodo Baggins. He was a second cousin to Bilbo Baggins. After his marriage, he lived in Buckland and often stayed at Brandy Hall, where his father-in-law, Gorbadoc Brandybuck kept a generous table. He and his wife died when Frodo was only twelve years old. Drogo drowned in the Brandywine River, but there was some debate as to why; some said that he and Primula went boating after dinner and his weight sunk the boat, while others maintained that his death was not an accident and his wife pushed him in and he pulled her in after him.

Samwise Gamgee's father, The Gaffer described him as a "decent, respectable hobbit" who was "partial to his vittles."[1][2]
