History

Náin ruled for only one year, between 1980 and 1981. During his time the Dwarves of Durin's folk lived in Khazad-dûm, but had awoken a Balrog. The Balrog slew Náin's father and shortly thereafter slew Náin himself. Under his son Thráin's direction, Durin's folk fled their ancestral home for safety in Lonely Mountain and the Grey Mountains.[1]
