Baruk Khazâd! Khazâd ai-mênu!
Revision as of 12:15, 9 February 2008 by Ederchil
Though it is much older, the first recorded use was in the Battle of the Hornburg:
But a small dark figure that none had observed sprang out of the shadows and gave a hoarse shout: Baruk Khazâd! Khazâd ai-mênu! An axe swung and swept back. Two Orcs fell headless. The rest fled. 1
Later, Gimli gives some variations on the battle-cry: Khazâd! Khazâd! and Khazâd ai-mênu!. The cry is translated "Axes of the Dwarves! The Dwarves are upon you!"2.
