Bard II was the son of Brand and heir to the Kingdom of Dale.

History

During the War of the Ring his father was slain in the Battle of Dale, and Bard with many Men of Dale and Dwarves of Erebor were forced back to Erebor by Easterlings. There he was besieged with his ally Thorin III Stonehelm for several days.

When news came from the south of the destruction of Sauron, Bard and Thorin emerged from the Lonely Mountain and broke the siege. Later he sent an ambassador to the crowning of King Elessar and thereafter his kingdom enjoyed the protection of the King of the West.[1]
