Dáin I (ruled for 4 years, from Third Age 2589 – 2589) was a King of Durin's folk during the period when they lived in the Grey Mountains. He had three children, Thrór, Frór, and Grór. Dáin and his people were troubled by increasing dragon attacks, and eventually both Dáin and Frór were killed by a Cold-drake. After Dáin's death, Thrór and Grór led the Dwarves of Durin's folk back to Lonely Mountain.
