Under Dáin I, attacks by dragons on dwarven mines in the Grey Mountains (Ered Mithrin) continued. In TA 2589, Dáin I and his second son Frór were slain at the doors of their hall by a Cold-Drake. He was the last King of Durin's Folk to live in the Grey Mountains; shortly after Dáin I was laid to rest in the tombs of the mountain halls, the Grey Mountains were abandoned by the Dwarves.
In Icelandic, the word dáinn means "dead."
