Frerin (Third Age 2751 – 2799, aged 48 years) was a dwarf of the royal line of Durin's folk, and the second son of King Thráin II. His older brother was the Dwarven hero and future king Thorin II Oakenshield, and his younger sister was Dís.
With the rest of his family, Frerin was driven into exile from the Lonely Mountain when the Dragon Smaug attacked their home. He later took part in the bloody War of the Dwarves and Orcs, although he was still very young at the time.
In the final conflict of the war, the Battle of Azanulbizar, Frerin was in the first assault of the vanguard that was led by his father, which was thrown back with loss. Frerin and the rest of the vanguard were driven into a wood of great trees near the lake Mirrormere. It was there Frerin was slain, along with his kinsman Fundin, and many others.
