Frodo Baggins was a hobbit of the Third Age , the most famous of all Hobbits in the histories for his leading role in the Quest of the Ring . During this epic quest, he bore the One Ring to Mount Doom and there destroyed it, giving him renown like no other Halfling throughout Middle-earth . He is also peculiar for being, as a Ring-bearer , one of the three Hobbits who sailed from Middle-earth to Aman , there to die in peace.

Frodo, the child of the respectable Drogo Baggins and Primula Brandybuck , was born on 22 September of S.R. 1368 . After his parents died in a boating accident, Frodo went to live in Brandy Hall with his mother’s relatives, the Brandybucks . He grew up under the guardianship of the Master of Buckland Rorimac "Goldfather" Brandybuck , who was his uncle. Frodo was a bit of a troublesome lad; [ source? ] he was once caught stealing mushrooms from Farmer Maggot , who in return thrashed Frodo and set his three dogs to chase Frodo from Bamfurlong to Bucklebury Ferry .

Frodo stayed in Buckland until his uncle Bilbo adopted him and took him in to live at Bag End , Bilbo's estate in Hobbiton . He enjoyed life with his "queer" Uncle Bilbo, with whom he shared the same birthday; Bilbo taught him to read, and told him stories of the past, even giving him some instruction in the elvish tongue. It is possible Bilbo even took his young cousin to see the Elves that wandered about outside the Shire . Bilbo made Frodo his heir, frustrating the attempts of the disagreeable Sackville-Bagginses , who coveted the estate of Bag End.
