J. R. R. Tolkien was an English writer, poet, philologist, and university professor with a net worth of $500 million. J. R. R. Tolkien earned his net worth as author of the classic high fantasy works The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, and The Silmarillion. He was also Rawlinson and Bosworth Professor of Anglo-Saxon at Oxford University, as well as Merton Professor of English Language and Literature there. He was born in Bloemfontein, Orange Free State, and was Commander of the Order of the British Empire.
John Ronald Reuel Tolkien, CBE ( /'t?lki:n/, US /'to?lki:n/; 3 January 1892 - 2 September 1973) was an English writer, poet, philologist, and university professor, best known as the author of the classic high fantasy works The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, and The Silmarillion.
Tolkien was Rawlinson and Bosworth Professor of Anglo-Saxon at Pembroke College, Oxford, from 1925 to 1945 and Merton Professor of English Language and Literature there from 1945 to 1959.

Between 1951 and 1955, Tolkien applied the term legendarium to the larger part of these writings.
While many other authors had published works of fantasy before Tolkien, the great success of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings led directly to a popular resurgence of the genre. This has caused Tolkien to be popularly identified as the "father" of modern fantasy literature--or, more precisely, of high fantasy. In 2008, The Times ranked him sixth on a list of "The 50 greatest British writers since 1945".Forbes ranked him the 5th top-earning dead celebrity in 2009. Nominated for a Nobel Prize in Literature by his friend C. S. Lewis, he was rejected on the grounds of his "poor prose"; the prize was instead awarded to Ivo Andric.
Most of Tolkien's paternal ancestors were craftsmen. The Tolkien family had their roots in Lower Saxony - the homeland of the original Anglo-Saxons - but had been
