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 Thráin's direction, Durin's folk fled their ancestral home for safety in Lonely Mountain and the Grey Mountains.
