1) n: Merry, born Meriadoc Brandybuck, of the Nine Walkers, also known as the Fellowship of the Ring. He was a hobbit, race Harfoot with a little bit of Fallowhide, and cousin to both Pippin(Peregrin Took)and Frodo Baggins, the Ringbearer. He and Pippin were separated from the Fellowship at Amon Hen, being captured by orcs. They were pursued by Aragorn, Legolas, and Gimli, who had heard of their capture from the dying Boromir. However, before they can catch up to the captured hobbits, Merry and Pippin escape to Fangorn Forest and meet the Ents. The Ents, with the two hobbits in tow, attack and destroy Isengard. Aragorn, Legolas, Gimli, and Gandalf the White catch up to them there, where Pippin touches a palantir and is whisked away to Minas Tirith by Gandalf. Merry remains and becomes good friends with Theoden, the King of Rohan. Soon the Rohirrim are called to Gondor's aid, and although Merry is ordered to remain behind, he and the King's niece Eowyn follow the army secretly. At Pellenor Fields, Merry wounds the Witchking, giving Eowyn the chance to slay him, then says goodbye to the dying Theoden. Badly wounded himself, he makes his way into Minas Tirith, where Pippin finds him and takes him to the House of Healing, where Aragorn heals him.
After the war, he and Pippin play an important part in the liberation of the Shire from Sarumon. Merry gains the title of Meriadoc the Magnificant and becomes head of the Brandybucks. He marrys Estella Bolger. Long years later, when he is much older, he recieves an invitation to return to Rohan to visit the old and dying King Eomer. He and Pippin leave the Shire and are never seen there again. They visit Eomer and are with him when he dies, then they go to Minas Tirith and lived there for the little time left they had to live. Merry's body is brought back to Rohan, of which he was made a soldier, and is kept there until King Elessar (Aragorn) dies. Then he and Pippin are laid on either side of the King.
