Nogrod was one of two Dwarven cities in the Ered Luin.

Description

Nogrod lay in the north central part of the mountain range, near Mount Dolmed where the Dwarf-road of Beleriand crossed into Eriador.[1] It was home to the [[[Dwarves of Nogrod]]. Nogrod was also the home to the great Dwarven smiths Gamil Zirak and Telchar.[2]

History

The city was built sometime during the Years of the Trees when the western Dwarf Fathers awoke from beneath Mount Dolmed.

Eöl the Dark Elf often went there, as did his son Maeglin.[3] While initially friendly to the Elves of Beleriand, the Dwarves of Nogrod killed Thingol of Doriath in his treasury after having grafted the treasure of Nargothrond for him, and they returned to sack the city after the departure of Melian and her protective Girdle of Melian. They were hunted down by Beren Erchamion and killed by his army of Laiquendi and a group of Ents at the Battle of Sarn Athrad.[4]

Like Belegost a little to the North, Nogrod was ruined during the War of Wrath, when the Blue Mountains were broken and the Gulf of Lune flowed into Eriador. However, it seems that possible that at least one of the cities was rebuilt and lived up through the Fourth Age.[5]

Etymology

Nogrod can be analyzed as containing Naug/Nogoth "dwarf"; the second element *-rod could be a form of rhaud "hollow, cavernous".[6]

Its name in Khuzdul was Tumunzahar meaning "Hollowbold".[3]
