The Iron Hills were a range of hills in the northeast of the known parts of Middle-earth, border-lining Rhûn. There was also a Dwarf-realm located in the hills, led famously by Dáin Ironfoot.

History

The Hills were mined for thousands of years by the Dwarves. The mountains were mined, as their namesake, for iron and contained little to no mithril. The Dwarf-road of Mirkwood ran northeast to the Hills for the Dwarf-traders than went to and from Khazad-dûm and the Hills.

It officially became a Dwarf-realm in T.A. 2590, when Grór left the Grey Mountains after losing its dominance to Dragons. Over hundreds of years it became a great realm, especially after the destruction of Erebor. Before the death of Smaug, the Iron Hills was the main dwelling of Durin's folk in the East, and was also the strongest realm militarily in Wilderland.
