Durin's folk were by right the inhabitants of Khazad-dûm, also called the Longbeards. Their first King was Durin the Deathless.

The Dwarves of Durin's folk were ruled by six kings named Durin, all fathers and sons, until Durin VI, who was killed by Durin's Bane in 1980 of the Third Age. After him Durin did not return to his people for many years, until in the Fourth Age a Durin VII appeared, likely the son of Thorin III, and therefore would have been a direct descendent of Durin the Deathless. Durin VII was also known as Durin the Last.
