The Family Tree of the House of Durin

Showing the descendants of Durin. All information in the tree is from The Lord of the Rings, Appendix A, "Durin’s Folk"[1] unless otherwise specified. The figures after the names are those of birth and death where recorded (when only one figure is shown it is the date of birth). A dagger symbol, '†' signifies those who did not die of old age. A name preceded by '*' indicates one of the Kings of Durin's Folk; an italicized name denotes one of the companions of Thorin on the quest of Erebor. A dashed line indicates a line of descent with some members missing.
