Óin (King of Durin's Folk)
Óin's reign was largely uneventful: Durin's folk continued to dwell in the Grey Mountains with the continual threat of attack from the dragons. Towards the very end of Óin's reign, in T.A. 2460, the Shadow returned to Dol Guldur in Mirkwood with increased strength; and in c. 2480 Orcs began to spread again in the Misty Mountains in order to block all passes into Eriador, whilst in Sauron's creatures took Moria as their own.
Óin died in T.A. 2488, having reigned for 103 years, and was succeeded by his son Náin.
