Bruenor Battlehammer I was the 2nd King of Mithral Hall, and the namesake of the more widely known 8th and 10th king of Mithral Hall.

He was the youngest of Gandalug Battlehammer's three sons, and inherited the throne despite not being the oldest.[1] It is his personal battle armor that became the official royal armor of all future Battlehammer kings.[2]

Towards the end of his life, Bruenor faked his death so he could abdicate his throne and go on a final adventure free of responsibility.[3]
