King Marothor Vraiken "The Magnificent"
MAROTHOR.jpg

(785-1079/3) Dwarf-king of Orrek from the Vraiken Clan, who assumed the throne of Orrek in 935/4, after Arvegorn the Barren-King died without an heir and the Kronehelm line ended. Marothor inherited a troubled Dwarf-realm in dark times. During his reign there were many goblin raids in the north which he had to suppress, and Kronar; the great Dwarf-realm of the south, fell to an orc army in 1079/4. Because of a long illness, Marothor was unable to aid his southern brethren, and the northern dwarves entered a sad, new period of decline. It is said that upon hearing news of the destruction of Krone Feyr, Marothor was overcome with grief and died within a few months.
