Dáin I (T.A. 2440 - 2589, aged 149 years) was King of Durin's folk for 4 years, from T.A. 2585 to 2589.[1]

[edit] History

Dáin was the son of King Náin II, and he had a younger brother Borin. He had three children, Thrór, Frór, and Grór.

Dáin flourished during the period when the House of Durin was seated in the Grey Mountains. He succeeded his father when the Dragons of the north had declared war against the Dwarves of the Grey Mountains. Dáin ruled his people, who were troubled by increasing attacks from his halls until his rule came to a premature end when both he and his second son, Frór, were killed by a Cold-drake at his gates.

After his death, his sons Thrór and Grór led most of the Dwarves of Durin's folk south. Thrór led one group back to Lonely Mountain, while Grór founded his own realm in the Iron Hills.[1]
