King Kelthor Krandåhk "Hammerhand"

(81-252/3) Kelthor Krandåhk; known as "Hammerhand," was a famous Dwarven King of Urkhar, who was slain at the Battle of Orgorod .

When Alokkair began the Gauth War and attempted to overthrow the Council of Sorcerë, Kelthor answered their desperate call for aid.

In the year 252/3, he marched from Thürgen Feyr with a large dwarf army, and fought heroically against Alokkair's Gauth and orc-hordes at the Battle of Orgorod. Sadly, he was slain on the field of battle.

In recognition of the sacrifice made by Kelthor and his Dwarvish warriors, the Saar later bestowed an Val-Khûra on the Dwarves of Urkhar.

Kelthor was the Eighth ruler from the Krandåhk Clan. He was succeeded on the Firestone Chair by his son Kothar.
