Grór (TA 2563 - TA 2805) was the founder of the Dwarven realm in the Iron Hills and its first Lord.


Grór was born in Ered Mithrin (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 Erebor, Grór went further into the east and in TA 2590 he established the Kingdom of the Dwarves in the Iron Hills. Two hundred years later, just before the Battle of Azanulbizar (or Nanduhirion) in TA 2799, he thought himself too old to go, and instead sent his son Náin and grandson Dáin II, the king of the dwarves at the Iron Hills at the time of The Hobbit. Grór was indeed old, for he died not too long after in 2805.
