Náin I

Revision as of 19:09, 18 May 2006 by Ebakunin (Talk | contribs)

Náin I (Third Age 1832 – 1981, lived 149 years) was the son of Durin VI and King of Durin's folk. He ruled for only 1 year, between 1980 and 1981. During Náin's 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's direction, Durin's folk fled their ancestral home for safety in Lonely Mountain and the Grey Mountains.
