|House||House of Durin|
Fundin was most likely born in the Lonely Mountain and went into exile with his people after the attack by the Dragon Smaug. He fathered two sons, Balin and Dwalin, both of which were members of Thorin and Company and were involved with the regaining of Lonely Mountain.
Fundin was killed beneath the East-gate of Moria in the Battle of Azanulbizar, the final conflict of the War of the Dwarves and Orcs: He was part of the first assault of the vanguard that was thrown back with loss, and was driven into a wood by lake Mirrormere.
