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 T.A. 1975 the evil Kingdom of Angmar was destroyed, freeing up land to the north. In T.A. 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.
The Old English word frum means "beginning". Frumgar can be interpreted as "chieftain".
