This article is about the Dain I, son of Náin II. For the King under the Mountain, see Dain II Ironfoot.

Dáin I was a Dwarf and a King of Durin's Folk in the Third Age. He was the son of Náin II and had a younger brother, Borin. He had three sons: Thrór, Frór, and Grór.


Dáin's Halls

Dáin I's reign was plagued by attacks from dragons in the Grey Mountains. In TA 2589, Dáin I and his second son Frór were slain at the doors of their hall by a Cold-drake. He was the last King of Durin's Folk to live in the Grey Mountains; shortly after Dáin I was laid to rest in the tombs of the mountain halls, the Grey Mountains were abandoned by the Dwarves.

Dáin I was succeeded by his son Thrór, who returned to the Lonely Mountain and unsuccessfully attempted to reclaim Moria. His younger son Grór founded his own realm in the Iron Hills.[1]
