BiographyEdit

Dain's Halls

Dáin's Halls

Under Dáin I, attacks by dragons including the "Great Cold Drake" on dwarven mines in the Grey Mountains 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.

Dáin I was succeeded by his son Thrór, who returned to the Lonely Mountain and unsuccessfully attempted to reclaim Moria. His younger son Grór founded his own realm in the Iron Hills.[1]
