365 Days of Middle-earth ~ Day 307: Glóin

Glóin, son of Gróin and father of Gimli, was a Dwarf of Durin’s line.

After the Battle of Azanulbizar, he was a companion of the wandering Thráin and Thorin, and he later accompanied Thorin Oakenshield on the Quest for Erebor, after which he became a rich and important figure in Erebor.

He attended the Council of Elrond in TA 3018 with his son, having been sent as an emissary representing the King under the Mountain.  He died in FO 15 at the age of 253.

In the upcoming Hobbit films, he will be portrayed by Peter Hambleton.
