The Dwarves of Erebor were those who dwelt in the halls of Erebor, beneath the Lonely Mountain. The Dwarves may have first colonized the mountain as early as the Second Age, but it was first densely populated during Third Age after the awakening of the Balrog and the flight of Durin's folk from Khazad-dum. Thráin I established a kingdom thereafter. His son, Thorin I, later became King under the Mountain and after seeing the wealth of the Dwarves of the Grey Mountains abandoned Erebor. But after the Cold-drakes invaded the Grey Mountains and drove most of the Dwarves out, Thrór, the descendent of Thorin I, took some of his people to Erebor and refounded the kingdom. The Dwarves were properous, and made great wealth for themselves until they were dispossessed of their immense wealth by Smaug the Dragon, who sacked their kingdom. But they reclaimed their inheritance many years later under the leadership of Thorin Oakenshield. But it was the descendants of Dáin II Ironfoot that ruled there ever after.
