Belba Baggins was a Hobbit of the Shire.

[edit] History

Belba was the eldest daughter, and second-oldest child, of Mungo Baggins and Laura Grubb. This made her the aunt of Bilbo. She married Rudigar Bolger, and they had one child together, Herugar, the grandfather of Fredegar.[1]

[edit] Portrayal in Adaptations

2003: The Hobbit (2003 video game):

Five portraits are clustered on a wall in Bag End. One of them is Belba, and one of Bilbo's lines when looking at the portraits is "That's my Aunt Belba".
