BiographyEdit

Frerin was the second son of Thráin II, older brother of Dis, younger brother of Thorin Oakenshield, grandson of Thror, and uncle of Fili and Kili. He lived in the Lonely Mountain. Little is known of him except for that he perished at a young age when he joined in the Battle of Azanulbizar in the climactic battle of the War of the Dwarves and Orcs, beneath the East Gate of Khazad-dûm in a wood near the Mirrormere.[1] It has also been said, by Tolkien himself no less, that Frerin had three sons. He said that he fancied the idea of Frerin being a father figure. During an interview in 1964, he was asked the question "Do you think the line of Thrór ended at Fíli and Kíli?" to this Tolkien responded with "No, I do not believe that the line ended there. I always fancied Frerin a father figure. I never really answered that question, but I think that Frerin had three sons before he died of his wounds in Moria. The three sons were Bifur, Bofur. They were not part of Thorin's company. Bifur died during the Desolation of Smaug. He went to the Iron Hills to live with his distant uncle after the Kingdom under the Mountain was destroyed. I do not think that Bofur died. He went to the Iron Hills to live with his distant uncle after Erebor was destroyed. Sometimes I like to think that he was present at his uncle Thorin's death and that after Dain became king of Erebor, he became king of the Iron Hills."[Source?]

AppearanceEdit

In the Hobbit, Thorin said to Fíli that he reminded him very much of his late younger brother.
