Noegyth Nibin

Revision as of 11:14, 9 November 2012 by Mith (Talk | contribs)

The Noegyth Nibin were a Dwarvish people known for their particularly small stature. They were descended from exiles out of the east that had settled in the moorlands between the rivers Narog and Sirion, as well as the caverns where Nargothrond was later delved. Noegyth Nibin is a Sindarin name, also found in the related forms Nibin-Nogrim and Nibin-noeg, but most commonly seen in its translated form 'Petty-dwarves'. The Noegyth Nibin (pronounced, incidentally, approximately as 'noygooth neebeen') did not survive the First Age - the last of them, a Petty-dwarf known as Mîm, was slain by Húrin Thalion.
