Thorin III Stonehelm (Third Age 2866 – Fourth Age) was the son and heir of Dáin II Ironfoot of Durin's folk, who was king of the Dwarves of Erebor and the Iron Hills in Wilderland.

Thorin fought the Easterlings in the Battle of Dale during the War of the Ring, and took refuge in Erebor after his father was killed at its gates, along with Brand king of Dale, so Thorin then became King under the Mountain. When the news of the Sauron's defeat in the South came to the ears of the enemy, they became dismayed and the Dwarves and Men came forth from the mountain and routed them driving them back of the river Carnen, never troubling them again. Thorin helped rebuild Erebor and Dale along with Dale's new king Bard II, son of Brand, and once again both their people prospered, and their realms became close allies with the Reunited Kingdom of Arnor and Gondor of King Elessar.

During his rule Gimli, son of Glóin, led a number of Dwarves South to Aglarond, where a new colony was settled. Also during his rule mining for mithril in Moria slowly began again, although Moria was not yet permanently settled.

Thorin III had a descendant who was held to be the reincarnation of Durin the Deathless, and would rule as Durin VII the Last. He later went and reclaimed Khazad-dum during the Fourth Age.
