Dwarf of Erebor born in 2879 of the Third Age in the blue
mountains. He went to
live in Erebor after Smaug was killed. Gloin, part of the Thorin and Company, was his father.
They both went to Rivendell in 3018 where Gimli became part of the Fellowship of the
Ring. Gimli was one a few dwarves to become friendly with elves. He befriended Legolas
the Sindar Elf. He fought bravely at Hornburg, Pelennor Fields and the Black Gate of
Mordor. After the war he became lord of the Glittering Caves under Helm’s Deep. He
remained there until Aragorn died and accompanied Legolas to the Undying Lands.
