The One Wiki to Rule Them All

Grór was the founder of the Dwarven settlements in the Iron Hills and its first lord.

Biography

Grór was born in the Grey Mountains as the youngest of three sons born to Dáin I. His older brothers were Thrór and Frór. After the death of his father in TA 2589, he and his brother left the Grey Mountains and while Thrór went back to the Lonely Mountain, Grór went further into the east and in TA 2590 he established himself as Lord of the Iron Hills.

Two hundred years later, just before the Battle of Azanulbizar in TA 2799, he thought himself too old to go at age 237, and instead sent his son Náin and grandson Dáin. Grór died shortly after in TA 2805.[1]

Portrayal in adaptations

In The Lord of the Rings Online Grór appears in an extended flashback depicting the Battle of Azanulbizar, in which he fights alongside his son and grandson.
