A Broadbeam dwarf by Ben Wootten

The Broadbeams were one of the seven houses of the Dwarves. They were originally paired with the Firebeards. The ancestor of the Broadbeams was among the oldest (together with the ancestors of the Firebeards and Longbeards) of the Seven Ancestors of the Dwarves.[1]

The House corresponding to the Broadbeams is called Linnar's Folk, said to reside mainly in the Iron Hills during the late Third Age.[2]
