The King of Khazad-dûm (Sindarin: Aran Moria) was typically the King of Durin's Folk who also ruled Khazad-dûm, the greatest dwarf kingdom of the Longbeard clan.

Founded in the Years of the Trees by Durin the Deathless, the kingdom lasted for thousands of years before its people were driven into exile by a Balrog in T.A. 1980. The defeat of Durin's Bane and Sauron in the War of the Ring might have allowed Durin VII to reclaim their ancestral home sometime in the Fourth Age.
