Line 1: Line 1:
The '''Dwarves of the Grey Mountains''' were the [[Dwarves]] of [[Durin's folk]] who lived in the [[Grey Mountains]] in northern [[Middle-earth]]. They fled to the Grey Mountains in [[Third Age]] 1981 after a [[Balrog]] was unearthed in their ancestral home of [[Khazad-dûm]]. Another portion of their clan established the kingdom of [[Lonely Mountain]], but King [[Thorin I]], learning that most of his people remained in the Grey Mountains, abandoned Lonely Mountain to join the Dwarves to the north.

Increasing attacks by [[Dragons]] plagued the Dwarves until King [[Dáin I]] was slain by a [[Cold-drakes|Cold-drake]] in 2589. Durin's folk then left the Grey Mountains, with some returning to Lonely Mountain while others founded their own kingdom in the [[Iron Hills]].
