Dáin II (Third Age 2767 – 3019, aged 252 years) was a descendant of Grór, the youngest son of Dáin I of Durin's folk, and was lord of the Dwarves of the Iron Hills in Wilderland. He followed his father, Náin, in lordship after Nain was killed by the great Orc Azog during the Battle of Azanulbizar, the final conflict in the War of the Dwarves and Orcs. Azog was killed by Dáin himself. He was a very young Dwarf at the time, and it was heralded as a magnificent feat. Dáin alone looked past the gate into Moria, and had the wisdom to know that it was impossible for the Dwarves to return at that time because of Durin's Bane. He returned to the Iron Hills with his people and became the new lord of the Iron Hills.

During his reign in the Iron Hills his people became the strongest in Wilderland, being the only realm strong enough to resist Sauron if he dare come from the North and retake the realm of Angmar and the northern passes of the Misty Mountains.

Dáin was the the second-cousin of Thorin Oakenshield, and responded to Thorin's call for help during the quest to reclaim Erebor. Dáin set out with more than five hundred Dwarves, and arrived just in time for the Battle of Five Armies (as recounted in The Hobbit).

After Thorin's death, Dáin became King under the Mountain and King of Durin's folk. During Dáin's reign as king, he became exceedingly rich and his people were very prosperous. The town of Dale was rebuilt and it's border stretched far to the South and East and the friendship between the Elves of Mirkwood, Men of Dale, and Dwarves of Erebor was close, especially the Men and Dwarves. Dáin was killed in the Battle of Dale during the War of the Ring in 3019 T.A., while defending the body of King Brand of Dale before the gates of Erebor. He was, by then, an extremely old Dwarf but far from feeble. After the battle he was succeeded by his son, Thorin III Stonehelm.
