During a battle with orcs, Huor and Húrin, at a very young age, became lost and desperate in a mist on Dimbar. They were found by Thorondor, and would be the first mortals to see Gondolin.[2]

During the life of Túrin Turambar, Dimbar was overrun by Orcs, and Beleg Strongbow would lead raids against them.[2]
