Kings of Durin's Folk Durin I the Deathless Durin III Durin VI Náin I Thráin I Thorin I Glóin Óin Náin II Dáin I Thrór Thráin II Thorin II Oakenshield Dáin II Ironfoot Thorin III Durin VII
King of Durin's Folk in exile, the son of Thrór and father of Thorin II Oakenshield. He escaped Erebor when Smaug descended upon it, but later wandered Middle-earth seeking to return there; he was captured by Sauron and died in the pits of Dol Guldur.
Tolkien doesn't give more than brief notes on the pronunciation of
Dwarf names, and certainly nothing that would help with 'Thráin'. The use of a long á suggests that something like 'thrawin' might be a possibility, but given the lack of direct evidence, the more natural 'thrayn' is as good an alternative as any.
