"But, but, lord, I offered you my sword. I do not want to be parted from you like
this, Thoden King. And as all my friends have gone to the battle, I should be
ashamed to stay behind."
Merry addressing King Thoden

Meriadoc Brandybuck

Meriadoc "Merry" Brandybuck (later known as Meriadoc "Merry" Brandybuck I, due to


his grandson's birth) was a Hobbit and one of Frodo's cousins and closest friends.
He loved boats and ponies and had a great interest in the maps of Middle-earth. He
was also one of the nine companions in The Fellowship of the Ring.

BiographyEdit
Merry was born in TA 2982. He was the only child of Saradoc Brandybuck (TA 2940 -
FO 11), Master of Buckland, and Esmeralda Took (TA 2936 - ?), the younger sister of
Paladin Took II , making him first cousin to Paladin's son Pippin, who was clearly
his closest friend.
War of the RingEdit
Merry was considered the most perceptive and intelligent of the hobbits, for
example, even before Frodo Baggins leaves the Shire, he knew of the One Ring and
its power. He guarded Bag End after Bilbo's party, protecting Frodo from the
various and often unwanted guests. He also was the force behind "the Conspiracy" of
Sam, Pippin, Fredegar Bolger (more commonly known as "Fatty", due to his plump
form) and himself to help Frodo. Thus, even before the Quest of the Ring begins,
Merry was well prepared and organized; he assembled their gear and brought ponies.
His shortcut through the Old Forest served them well, because they avoided the
Black Riders and met Tom Bombadil, who helped them. At the Barrow-downs, Merry
acquired his sword, a work of Westernesse.
Lotr 5
Merry back to back with his good friend Pippin
At Bree, he was not present in the Prancing Pony when Frodo foolishly put on the
ring; but was outside taking a walk, and was nearly killed by the Nazgl who
arrived. At Rivendell, he was seen studying maps and plotting their path. His
approval to the Fellowship came with only a little less reluctance than Pippin's;
they were the two to relay news to the people of the Shire about Frodo's journey,
but in the end Gandalf, believing in the friendship and loyalty shown to Frodo and
Sam, requested that Elrond allow the two hobbits to come along. At Amon Hen he was
captured along with Pippin by a band of Saruman's fighting Uruk-hai, but he made a
good account for himself, and Boromir valiantly defended him, though Boromir died
in the attempt.
Escaping with Pippin into Fangorn Forest, Treebeard and the newly risen Gandalf the
White met him. Along with Pippin, he drank significant amounts of Entwash, which
contributed to speedy gains in height and hair growth. Accompanying Treebeard to
the Entmoot, and later to Isengard, he and Pippin were set as guardians following
Saruman's fall. It was here that Merry encountered King Thoden of Rohan, and was
reunited with the remaining members of the Fellowship (save Frodo and Sam).

Merry wants to fight


All my friends have gone to battle, I would be ashamed to be left behind
Separated from Pippin when Gandalf took the latter to Gondor, Merry swore fealty to
Thoden and became his squire. Without permission from his liege, he rode to the
Battle of the Pelennor Fields in the care of young Dernhelm (who was actually
owyn, though Merry didn't know it). When Nazgl attacked the Riders of Rohan and
Thoden was injured, Merry and owyn faced the Witch King of Angmar alone. Here,
Merry's companion revealed herself to be owyn. Battling both fell beast and the
Nazgl alone, owyn was well assisted by Merry's crucial move: his sword, built for
this very purpose, was one of the few weapons able to pierce the Ringwraith's form,
but at a great expense to himself. He cut the Witch King behind the knee as he was
about to kill Eowyn. This was enough to allow owyn to finish off the Witch-king.
Merry heard Thoden's last words, but went unnoticed by the honour escort of Riders
and was found wandering the city by Pippin. He was saved by the healing of Aragorn
and recovered fully.
For his bravery in battle, King omer, as the new King of Rohan, knighted him and
gave him the name of "Holdwine". During the Scouring of the Shire, he was in the
forefront of the Battle of Bywater, using the Horn of Rohan presented to him by
owyn.[1]

LegacyEdit
Upon their return he and Pippin both got married to beautiful hobbit women. They
were also the tallest of hobbits - Meriadoc being the slightly taller of the two -
taller even than the legendary Bandobras "Bullroarer" Took, due to their having
drunk large amounts of Entwater. Merry married Estella Bolger some time after the
end of the Third Age. He became the Master of Buckland in SR 1432 (FA 11). He wrote
Old Words and Names in the Shire. Although he was not recorded as having any
children within the family trees, he clearly had at least one son. At the age of
102, he returned to Rohan and Gondor with Pippin, dying there around the year FO
64. He was laid to rest in Gondor, and when Elessar died in the Fourth Age 120, he
and Pippin were entombed beside the great king.[2]

WeaponsEdit
SwordEdit
Merry uses a short barrow-blade for melee combat in books and video games, but in
the movies he loses his barrow blade and instead wields a Rohirrim short sword and
wears a helmet, shield and leather jerkin that were originally made for the young
King Theoden. The blade dissolved during the Battle of the Pelennor Fields when it
was used to stab the Witch-king of Angmar (Ringwraith, King of the Nazgl).
Throwing Weapons Edit
Merry can use rocks to hit opponents from a distance. In The Lord of the Rings: The
Return of the King (video game), he uses throwing knives instead of rocks, like all
other Hobbits. In his case, however, his daggers are slightly stronger.

Portrayal in adaptationsEdit
The Lord of the Rings film trilogyEdit
Meriadoc Brandybuck was played by Dominic Monaghan in all three of the Peter
Jackson's Film Trilogy of the The Lord of the Rings. Merry is very close with
Pippin, having almost the same relationship as Sam and Frodo do with each other.
Meriadoc is mostly used for comedic relief, along with Pippin. His role stays
mostly similar to the role he plays in the book.
