were paired with the [[ Firebeards]] , who lived in the Northern part of the Ered Luin when they were awakened by [[ Eru Ilúvatar]], before the First Age. They were prosperous in their great city of Belegost, trading with the Firebeards in the South, and also with the [[ Sindar]] and [[ Noldor]] of [[ Beleriand]], as well as the newly-appeared race of [[Men]] .

|−|The [[Nauglamír]], a jeweled necklace and one of the most beautiful treasures ever crafted in Arda, was made by the Broadbeams. The Broadbeams also helped build the city of [[Nargothrond]] for the Elves. Another famous item was the [[Dragon-helm of Dor-lómin]], which was made by the famous dwarf-smith, [[Telchar]]. |+|

|−|In the [[Battle of Unnumbered Tears]], the heavily- armoured Broadbeams, with their fearsome iron masks, held off the [[ dragon]] [[Glaurung]], as the sons of [[Fëanor]] retreated south to [[Ossiriand]]. During the battle, their great king, [[Azaghâl]] , was killed by Glaurung — but not before wounding the dragon with a dagger in the stomach. Glaurung screamed in pain and fled with many of the forces of [[Morgoth]] following him. Forgetting the battle, the Broadbeams then picked up their fallen leader and marched home. |+|

old kingdom of the Broadbeams came to a close in the [[War of Wrath]] with the breaking of the Ered Luin and the destruction of Beleriand, which sank beneath the waves. Belegost was ruined and the city of the Firebeards, [[Nogrod]], was totally destroyed, sinking into the sea with much of the Ered Luin. Some of the Dwarves stayed to rebuild what they could of their kingdoms, but many left to go to [[Khazad-dum]], home of the [[Longbeards]]. |+|
|−|In the [[Third Age]] it seems that the ''' Broadbeams''' may have parted ways with [[Durin' s folk]] along with the Firebeards, after the awakening of the [[Durin's Bane]], and headed back to the Ered Luin, where things were probably much better than they were after the sinking of Beleriand. |+|
