History

Durin the Seventh led Durin's folk back to Khazad-dûm and restored the ancient kingdom during the Fourth Age. There his house remained until the world grew old and the Dwarves failed and the days of Durin's race were ended.[2] The actions of Durin VII were prophesized at the time of the Battle of Five Armies.[3]

Etymology

Like all Durins after Durin I he was given the name of the first Father of the Dwarves because he greatly resembled him in both appearance and manner.
