The Lord of Dale was the title of the ruler of the realm of City-state of Dale before its fall to Smaug in TA 2770.


Its only known holder was Girion who perished in the destruction of the city.[1] Girion's noble descendent Bard did not renew the title instead being known as a 'King'.[2]

The title was probably a hereditary one.
