Náin I was the son of Durin VI, and succeeded his father as King of Khazad-dûm.

Biography

When his father was slain by the Balrog, Náin attempted to destroy it, but was himself killed the following year. The remainder of Durin's Folk fled Khazad-dûm, and it became known as Moria, the 'black pit'. He was succeeded on the throne of Durin's Folk by his son Thráin I who fled to the Lonely Mountain.[1]
