Grimbeorn the Old is the son of mighty Beorn, and chieftain of the Beornings. He lives at his house, Beorninghús, with his kin: his three children, his wife Gírta, and a few other close relatives. After a visit by the wizard Radagast and an attack on the lodge by goblins, Grimbeorn sends one of his children to the west across the Misty Mountains to warn the people of Eriador of the rising shadow of evil in Rhovanion.
Beorning characters first encounter him during the Beorning intro instance at Meadhollow.
He is also encountered in Vindurhal, in the Misty Mountains. [23.3S, 4.3E]
After imposing on his hospitality on her way south, Arwen invites Grimbeorn to her wedding in Minas Tirith. He accepts, if grumpily.
- Note: Grimbeorn is the sire of all beorning player characters. His two other children are Langhár and Sterkist.
