Fram was the son of Frumgar[1] and the fifth Lord of the Éothéod.


[edit] History

During his rule the Éothéod lived at the feet of the Grey Mountains where they were troubled by the Dragon Scatha. Fram slew the monster and claimed the Dragon's hoard as his own. The Dwarves of that region also laid claim to the treasure, but Fram rebuked the claim, instead sending them the teeth of the Dragon along with the message, "Jewels such as these you will not match in your treasuries, for they are hard to come by." The rebuke angered the Dwarves, and it was rumoured that they killed Fram for it.[1]

The city of Framsburg was named after him.

[edit] Portrayal in adaptations

2020: The Lord of the Rings Online:

Fram appear in a series of flashbacks narrating the history of Éothéod. When Scatha attacked Framsburg, Frumgar lost the use of his sword-arm, after which Fram swore revenge and hunted Scatha alone for two years. Frumgar died shortly after Fram returned with Scatha's treasure, while Fram himself was not killed by Dwarves, but by the servants of the Enemy who made it look like Dwarves were involved to sow dissent in the North. Fram left three sons, Gifica, Gundamári and Gisilhári. None of them were at age at the time of Fram's death and the two eldest died in battles against Orcs.
