Rogues of the Borderlands
The Iron Hills are a range of mountains in Middle-earth and a realm of the Dwarves of Durin’s Folk. Once part of Morgoth’s Iron Mountains, the Iron Hills are what remains of that gargantuan, broken range.
The Iron Hills are located in the northern and eastern parts of Middle-earth. The mountain range is in between Rhovanion and Rhûn. The hills are east of the Lonely Mountain.
Rich in many minerals, the hills got their name from the iron that was commonly found in the area. The Iron Hills held the River Redwater which joins to the River Running.
The exiled Dwarves in Iron Hills were the clan of Longbeards or Durin’s Folk and so were the noblest Dwarves. They had friendly relations with the Dwarves of the Lonely Mountains because Grór and Thrór’s kinship was of similar in like and mind.
