#REDIRECT [[Durin's Folk]]
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, son of Thorin III, grandson of Dáin II Ironfoot, and descendant in direct line from Durin the Deathless. Durin VII was known as Durin the Last.
