A Stiffbeard dwarf by Daniel Falconer

The Stiffbeards were one of the seven houses of the Dwarves that dwelt in Mountains of the East. They were originally paired with the Ironfists.[1]

It is possible that the Stiffbeards sent troops to aid Durin's folk in the War of the Dwarves and Orcs.[source?]
