Throughout the history of Middle-earth, their have been many Dwarf realms. They were:

  • Khazad-dum. The most famous and greatest of all the dwarf kingdoms. Located in the Misty Mountains, it was the home of the Longbeards. It prospered for thousands of years until the Dwarves awoke the Balrog which drove them from Khazad-dum, it was then renamed Moria ("Black Pit" in Sindarin).
  • Nogrod and Belegost, located in the Blue Mountains. Nogrod was the home of the Firebeards, and Belegost was the home to the Broadbeams. Nogrod was completely destroyed during the War of Wrath and Belegost being ruined, leaving the Firebeards and the Broadbeams to rebuild their halls or (as many did), relocate to Khazad-dum.
