The Dwarves of Nogrod were the Dwarven House who dwelled Nogrod in the First Age.

History

They were renowned as the best craftsman and jewelers in Middle-earth. They were also great masons, for they aided the Noldor in the building of Nargothrond.

However, their lust for jewels and other treasures led them to murder King Thingol for the Nauglamir, and later the Battle of the Thousand Caves. As they were returning home, they were waylaid by Beren Erchamion and Elves of Ossiriand in the Battle of Sarn Athrad. Those few that survived fled into the woods, where the Ents massacred the remainder.

Nogrod was ruined due to the War of Wrath by the Valar which marked the end of the First Age. Most of the Dwarves of Nogrod would later go to Khazad-dûm.
