Frodo Baggins was born to Drogo and Primula Baggins. When his parents drowned while boating on the Brandywine River, Frodo's older cousin Bilbo took him in. There he grew up, in Bilbo's home, Bag End. He was a very adventurous hobbit, but also very smart. When Bilbo decided to leave the Shire, he entrusted Frodo with Bag End, and also the one ring, which he had found while in gollum's cave. (see "The Hobbit" by J.R.R. Tolkien) Now Frodo has to jorney far away from the shire, along with the 8 other members of the fellowship, to destroy the one ring, and triumph over evil.
