Thorin III Stonehelm was a Dwarven Lord of the Iron Hills (presumably), King of Durin's Folk, and King under the Mountain

HistoryEdit

During the Lordship of his father, Thorin was more than likely born in the Iron Hills to Dáin II Ironfoot. During his younger years he saw his people able to finally return to the Lonely Mountain after many years of further exile, and wandering. He himself became a prince with the rise of his father as King under the Mountain, and over all the Longbeards.

During the War of the Ring at the age of one hundred fifty-three, Thorin fought the Easterlings in the Battle of Dale, and took refuge in Erebor after his father was killed at its gates, along with Brand king of Dale. Thorin then became King under the Mountain.

When the news of the Sauron's defeat in the South came to the ears of the enemy, they became dismayed and the Dwarves and Men came forth from the mountain and routed them driving them back of the river Carnen, never troubling them again.[1]

Under Thorin's leadership Erebor and Dale were rebuilt along with Dale's new king Bard II, son of Brand, and once again both their people prospered, and their realms became close allies with the Reunited Kingdom of Arnor and Gondor of King Aragorn II.

During his rule Gimli, son of Glóin, led a number of Dwarves South to Aglarond, where a new colony was settled. Also during his rule mining for mithril in Moria slowly began again, although Moria was not yet permanently settled.

Thorin III had a descendant who was held to be the reincarnation of Durin the Deathless, and would rule as Durin VII the Last.


BiographyEdit

Thorin III was the son and heir of Dáin II Ironfoot of Durin's Folk, who was lord of the Dwarves of the Lonely Mountain and the Iron Hills in Wilderland. The origins of his epithet Stonehelm are unknown.

He became King under the Mountain when his father Dáin was killed during the War of the Ring in 3019. Thorin III helped rebuild the Lonely Mountain and Dale, and prospered. His realm became a close ally of the Reunited Kingdom of Arnor and Gondor of King Elessar.

During his rule Gimli, son of Glóin, led a number of Dwarves south to the Glittering Caves, where a new kingdom was settled. Also during his rule mining for Mithril in Moria slowly began again, although Moria was not yet permanently settled.

Thorin III had an heir, who was held to be the reincarnation of Durin the Deathless, and who succeeded him at his death as Durin VII the Last.[1]
