'''Óin''' ([[Third Age]] 2238 – 2488, lived 250 years) was a King of [[Durin's folk]] who reigned for 103 years, from Third Age 2385 until his death. 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]]. 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]].
