Durin VI (Third Age 1731 – 1980, lived 249 years) was a King of Durin's folk and ruled the great Dwarven city of Khazad-dûm. During the end of his reign the Dwarves, while mining for mithril, awoke a Balrog that had hidden itself deep beneath the city. The monster began to wreck havoc on Khazad-dûm and slew Durin. Since the surviving Dwarves were unsure what type of monster they faced, the Balrog was simply called "Durin's Bane". Durin's son Náin I was slain shortly thereafter, leaving his grandson Thráin I to lead Durin's folk away from their ancestral home.
