Fram slain by Dwarves of the Grey Mountains (estimated date)
Event Type: Military/Strategic
Age: 3rd Age - The Kings
[Fram] slew Scatha, the great dragon of Ered Mithrin.... Thus Fram won great wealth, but was at feud with the Dwarves, who claimed the hoard of Scatha. Fram would not yield them a penny, and sent to them instead the teeth of Scatha made into a necklace, saying: "Jewels such as these you will not match in your treasuries, for they are hard to come by." Some say that the Dwarves slew Fram for this insult. There was no great love between Éothéod and the Dwarves.
