Paladin Took II was the thirty-first Thain of the Shire, and the father of the famous hobbit Peregrin Took.


Paladin was the only son of Adalgrim Took and his unnamed wife and the brother of Esmeralda (Took) Brandybuck. Paladin married Eglantine Banks, and had four children: Pearl Took, Pimpernel Took, Pervinca Took, and Peregrin Took.[1] Paladin lived near Whitwell, near Tuckborough, where he owned a farm.[2]

Paladin succeeded his childless second cousin Ferumbras III Took as Thain of the Shire in TA 3015.

When Saruman took control of the Shire through Lotho, he resisted and organized a defense against the Chief's men.[3] Paladin Took II died in FO 13, at the age of one-hundred and one.[1]
