Frumgar was the fourth Lord of the Éothéod and the grandson of Forthwini. His father's name was never recorded.

During his youth the Éothéod lived in the Vales of Anduin, near Mirkwood Forest. It was a dangerous area, beleaguered by the creatures of the Necromancer at Dol Guldur. However, in Third Age 1975 the evil Kingdom of Angmar was destroyed, freeing up land to the north. In 1977 Frumgar led the Éothéod to the vale between the rivers Greylin and Langwell, where they built a city later known as Framsburg after his son, Fram.
