Durin IV (Lived during late Second Age or early Third Age) was a King of Durin's folk who ruled the great Dwarven city of Khazad-dûm, and the fourth king to have the name Durin. Like his father he bore a Ring of Power.[1]

Contents

[edit] History

Like all Durins after Durin I he was given the name of the first of the Seven Fathers of the Dwarves because he greatly resembled him in both appearance and manner. Indeed it was believed among the Dwarves that he was the reincarnation of Durin I, though whether this is possible is unclear.[1]

[edit] Etymology

Durinn is one of the Dwarfs in the Dvergatal. The name means "Sleepy".[2]
