Thorin Oakenshield II, Dwarf King in exile. He was born in 2746 in the Third Age in the Kingdom under the Mountain, in Erebor in the east. In 2770, the great worm Smaug the Golden drove the Dwarves from their homes into exile. In a later war with the Orcs, Thorin was disarmed in combat and took an oak bough as a weapon, thus becoming known as Oakenshield. In 2941 he formed the expedition to the Shire to find a thief capable of helping them reclaim their lost home. Finally, in the fight to hold the home they won back, he was mortally wounded in The Battle of the Five Armies and died shortly after.
