History

Dís was the daughter of King Thráin II and sister of Thorin and Frerin. Like her brothers she was born in Lonely Mountain and was driven into exile in T.A. 2770 when the dragon Smaug sacked the kingdom. She was the mother of Fíli and Kíli

Female Dwarves were rarely seen, making up about a third of the population of Dwarves, and were seldom seen by others. When they were seen, they were often mistaken for male dwarves, because (according to rumour) they too had beards.[1]

Etymology

Jim Allan has suggested that Dís is derived from Old Norse -dís ("sister") found in many Nordic names (such as Herdís, Hjordís, etc).[2]
