Kurath was one of seven new barbaric kingdoms formed after the destruction of the kingdom of Adar.

Its capitol was the city of Kuldhûr, and it s leaders had a dreadful reputation for cruelty and terror. The kingdom was eventually absorbed into the larger realm of Morgoth, after the rise of Sorimmar. The last King of Kurath, whose true name is forgotten, became one of the seven Zûl, under his new master Sorimmar. The coat of arms of the realm of Kurath consisted of a silver mailed fist on a dark green field.
