Óin (Third Age 2238 – 2488, lived 250 years) was King of Durin's line who reigned for 103 years, from Third Age 2385 – 2488. He was the successor to Glóin son of Thorin I. In his time, the Dwarves of Durin's folk still dwelt in the Grey Mountains of the north. In the later years of his reign, the Shadow returned to Dol Guldur in Mirkwood, and Orcs and began to spread again in the Misty Mountains. In Óin's last years, Orcs plundered Moria, which was then deserted, and took it as their own. Óin was succeeded by his son Náin, who became King Náin II.
