Dís was a female Dwarf of Durin's Folk, daughter of Thrain and sister of Frerin and Thorin Oakenshield, as well as the mother of the brothers Fili and Kili.

BiographyEdit

Dís was a daughter of Thráin II, younger sister of Thorin Oakenshield and Frerin, and mother of Fíli and Kíli. She is the only dwarf-woman ever named by Tolkien, in homage to her sons' valiant deaths in the Battle of the Five Armies.[1]

Portrayal in adaptationsEdit

The Hobbit film trilogyEdit

In The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, Dis is mentioned by Kíli after he has been he captured by Wood-elves and is being kept prisoner in a cell. He talks about her to Tauriel, one of the elves, and explains that a dwarf-runed talisman he was holding is meant to remind him of the promise he made to his mother to return.

Behind the scenesEdit

Dís is the only female dwarf ever to be named or mentioned in the canon of Tolkien Mythology.
