Fram slays Scatha the Worm (estimated date)

Event Type: Military/Strategic

Age: 3rd Age - The Kings

Year: 1990

Description:
[The songs of Rohan] ... tell that [Fram] slew Scatha, the great dragon of Ered Mithrin, and the land had peace from the long-worms afterwards. Thus Fram won great wealth, but was at feud with the Dwarves, who claimed the hoard of Scatha.

The Return of the King, LoTR Appendix A, Annals of the Kings and Rulers: The House of Eorl

Then Éowyn gave to Merry an ancient horn, small but cunningly wrought all of fair silver with a baldric of green....

'This is an heirloom of our house,' said Éowyn. 'It was made by the Dwarves, and came from the hoard of Scatha the Worm.'

The Return of the King, LoTR Book 6, Ch 5, Many Partings

[Note: the date is estimated, based upon the migration of the Éothéod in 1977 III, led by Frumgar, Fram's father.]
