In "the fellowship of the ring" in bilbo's "long expected party," was Bilbo turning 106 or 111 years old? I think it was 111 myself and I need some folks here at Ironworks to help me prove a teacher of mine wrong

yup Bilbo was turning 111 and Frodo was turning 33. Which made their combined age 144, a gross, which is considered a rude term to apply to hobbits btw [img]smile.gif[/img]

Wasn't Frodo 53?

[edit]Just checked... no sorry you were right... 33...
I'm sure I saw an interview with Elijah Wood were he said his Charachter was 53... stupid boy...

Frodo was 50 when he left Hobbiton on his birthday, T.A 3018, at the time of the War of the Ring T.A. 3018-19; he was born T.A. 2968. "A Long Expected Party" occurred many years before, T.A. 3001, when he was 33. See "The Tale of Years" in Appendix A.
