In celebration of the unlikely adventurer who started J.R.R. Tolkien's epic Lord of the Rings adventure, this is the Bilbo Baggins story, explained.
Bilbo Baggins was born in the Shire in the year 2890 of the Third Age. The only son of Bungo Baggins and Belladonna Took, Bilbo spent his early life in the hobbit hole known as Bag End, which would remain his family home after the death of his parents.
As a boy, Bilbo always wanted to know more about things that were happening outside the Shire. This unusual trait drew the attention of the wizard Gandalf, but as Bilbo got older, he seemed to lose this quality. He lived alone and was pleased to enjoy the same comforts as his fellow Hobbits: food, drink, and leisure, and never causing trouble for his neighbors. Though Bilbo didn't know it, that was set to change after he turned 50.
Bilbo's early adulthood passed in quiet comfort at Bag End, but his calm life was disrupted by the arrival of Gandalf, who asked Bilbo to take part in an upcoming quest.
Soon, strange dwarves began arriving on Bilbo's doorstep, 13 in all. The dwarves were led by Thorin Oakenshield, who explained to Bilbo that they were on their way to Erebor to reclaim their ancestral home in the Lonely Mountain. The dragon Smaug had forced the dwarves out years earlier and now rested there, hoarding the treasure inside - which is why the dwarves needed Bilbo's help. Keep watching the video to see Bilbo's backstory fully explained.
