Bard II Dwarf-friend

Bard of Dale
was a Northman Warrior and the fourth King of Dale (in the

Second Line), ruling from T.A. 3019 into the early Fourth Age. He became King when his father Brand died in the three-day Battle of Dale. The allied army of Dwarves and Men lost the battle, which also claimed the Dwarf-king Dain Ironfoot, so Bard led the survivors — Northmen of Dale and the Long Lake area and a large contingent of Dwarves — into the Dwarf-hold at Erebor (S. "Lonely Mountain"). There, they withstood a brief siege which lasted until the destruction of the One Ring and their subsequent counterstrike against the demoralized Easterling attackers.
