The First Sack of Gundabad, took place in the mid Second Age. It was a conflict in which Orcs who had fled the War of Wrath in the First Age, invaded Mount Gundabad from Forodwaith, and drove the Longbeard Dwarves from their holy site. One which they would not gain back till after the War of the Ring.[1]
