Bain was the King of Dale, the second of the restored line.

History

Bain was the son of Bard the Bowman, and succeeded his father in T.A. 2977. He ruled in the lands south of the Lonely Mountain for thirty years, during which Balin and a group of Dwarves left Erebor to retake Moria.

He was succeeded by his son Brand in T.A. 3007, whose realm was said to extend far to the south and east of Esgaroth.[1]

Etymology

As the Language of Dale is rendered with Old Norse, the name perhaps represents Beinn meaning "mover".[2]
