Today we cover the life of Smaug – the greatest dragon of the Third Age. We also cover his ancestors – the dragons of the North – and their wars with the dwarves of the Grey Mountains – including the ancestors of Thorin Oakenshield. From Scatha and Cold Drakes to Smaug and the dragons that may have existed after him, we talk about them all!
