A Broadbeam dwarf by Ben Wootten

The Broadbeams were one of the seven houses of the Dwarves. They were originally paired with the Firebeards. The ancestor of the Broadbeams was among the oldest (together with the ancestors of the Firebeards and Longbeards) of the Seven Fathers of the Dwarves.[1]

The Broadbeams (with the Firebeards) awoke in Mount Dolmed in the Blue Mountains, and lived there throughout the history of their people.[2] Though unstated as to which kingdom was theirs, they built and dwelled in either or maybe both the great Dwarven cities of Nogrod and Belegost before their ruining in the War of Wrath.
