Throughout the history of Arda, there have been many Dwarf realms:

  • Nogrod and Belegost were located in the Blue Mountains. The Firebeards and Broadbeams awoke in Mount Dolmed in the Blue Mountains, and lived there throughout the history of their people. These two houses built the great Dwarven cities of Nogrod and Belegost in the Blue Mountains. It is not clear whether they shared the two cities or whether each house dwelt in its own.[3] Nogrod and Belegost were ruined at the end of the First Age, leaving the Firebeards and the Broadbeams to either rebuild their halls or, as many did, relocate to Khazad-dȗm in SA 40.
    The Ered Luin would later become a refuge for much of Durin's folk who established Thorin's Halls beyond the Lune[4] during the latter Third Age. However, the Firebeards and Broadbeams continued to live there through the Fourth Age, and probably till the diminishing of the race of Dwarves (there were and always will be Dwarves on the eastern side of the Blue Mountains).
  • The Exiled Kingdom in the Grey Mountains were the great halls of which many of Durin's folk relocated to after being exiled from Khazad-dȗm. The Dwarves of the Grey Mountains became very prosperous in their new halls. for over 500 years they mined and defended their halls from the Dragons of the north and the Orcs from the west. Until, finally Cold-drakes forced them from the mountains, and killed their king Dain I. However, dwarves still remained in the Ered Mithrin throughout the Third and Fourth Age after the core population fled, surviving in whatever mines and halls were remaining.[5]
