Nothing else is known of Fundin's life except that he was born in Erebor 108 years before the coming of Smaug. He was among those Dwarves forced into exile where they settled in Dunland. Fundin was later slain beneath the East Gate of Moria in the climatic Battle of Azanulbizar during the War of the Dwarves and Orcs. After the battle, all of the fallen Dwarves, Fundin included, were stripped of their armour and weaponry by their kinsmen, and were burnt upon pyres of wood.
