Estella Brandybuck, born Estella Bolger, was the younger sister of Fredegar Bolger and the daughter of Odovacar and Rosamunda Bolger. She was married to Meriodoc Brandybuck and they had at least one son.


On September 12, 3001 3A, Estella and her family attended Bilbo's Farewell Party. She giggled when Merry and Pippin were punished by Gandalf for stealing one of the fireworks. During the speech, Estella smiled at Merry until she witnessed Bilbo disappear with the magic ring that he held for sixty years. She later assisted her brother in moving Frodo's things to his new home at Crickhollow.

War of the RingEdit

When Frodo and the rest set out to take the Ring to Rivendell, Estella remained in Crickhollow while her brother was keeping appearances and delay news of their departure. She heard the sound of the Horn-call of Buckland when the Nazgûl arrived to find the ring and believed that Fred was Bilbo Baggins. As Sauron was preparing to rally his forces and send his spies to search for the ring, Estella was among those that volunteered in joining the Shire Company under the leadership of Will Whitfoot.

Near the end of the Battle of Pelennor Fields, Estella and the entire company charged against the retreating orcs when the Army of the Dead arrived. After the battle, Estella was in Minas Tirith where she was treating the wounded. She was very happy to see Merry who was injured. Estella a lot of time with Merry and the two began to develop their relationship. Later on, the two accompany the armies of the Free Alliance to the Black Gate and prepare to battle the forces of Mordor, giving Frodo and Sam enough time to destroy the One Ring. Estella survived the ongoing battle and attended the coronation of Aragorn.

Fourth AgeEdit

Estella married Merry sometime in the very early Fourth Age and they had at least one son whose name is not known. She died in 60 4A after she and her husband were in Gondor for the summer.
