Battle of Khonë Valley

(655/3) Khonë Valley was the site of a horrific, bloody battle fought between the races of dwarves and goblins, which ended the War of Sorrows.

It was at this crucial and titanic battle that the united goblin tribes were finally defeated and the long and costly War of Sorrows finally came to an end. The war had lasted nearly 250 years, and both sides were exhausted.

The ancient Dwarf-kings Celathor the Avenger and Goran the Steadfast were slain in this costliest of battles. This battle is considered the bloodiest in the War of Sorrows and cost the lives of over 30,000 dwarves, and over 100,000 orcs and goblins.
