Fundin (TA 2662 - TA 2799) was the son of Farin, the brother of Gróin, father of Balin and Dwalin, and uncle of Oin and Gloin, four of Thorin Oakenshield's companions on the Quest of Erebor. 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 Khazad-dum 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.
