 Portrayal in adaptations
2018: The Lord of the Rings Online:
- The heir of King Thorin Stonehelm is indeed named Durin. However, the game's story reveals that other Dwarves have been given that name and yet proved not to be the Father of the Longbeards returned.
- To Prince Durin's frustration, his father kept him secluded in the Iron Hills for his own safety during the War of the Ring. When given freedom to prove himself, the young Prince quickly takes to a leadership role. A major part of his motivation is to prove that he truly is or will be Durin VII.
- ↑ The mention of Durin's name as a prophecy in the Appendix A, and considering that the Appendix derives from the Red Book (copied Fo.A. 171), seems to suggest that he was probably born, or emerged, after that date.
- ↑ An alternative version of the genealogical tree of Appendix A suggested Durin VII was the son of Thorin III.
