Fram was the son of Frumgar[2] and the fifth Lord of the Éothéod.

History

During his rule the Éothéod lived at the feet of the Grey Mountains where they were troubled by the Dragon Scatha. Fram slew the monster and claimed the Dragon's hoard as his own. The Dwarves of that region also laid claim to the treasure, but Fram rebuked the claim, instead sending them the teeth of the Dragon along with the message, "Jewels such as these you will not match in your treasuries, for they are hard to come by." The rebuke angered the Dwarves, and it was rumored that they killed Fram for it. [2]
