Muster of the Dwarves for the War of the Dwarves and Orcs

Event Type: Military/Strategic

Age: 3rd Age - The Stewards

Dates: January 1, 2790 ~ December 31, 2792

This is an event in the prelude to the War of the Dwarves and Orcs; see that entry for the overall timeline:

Such was the tale [of Thrór's death at the hands of Azog] that Nár brought back to Thráin; and when he had wept and torn his beard he fell silent. Seven days he sat and said no word. Then he stood up and said:

'This cannot be borne!' ...

Thráin at once sent messengers bearing the tale, north, east, and west; but it was three years before the Dwarves had mustered their strength. Durin's Folk gathered all their host, and they were joined by great forces sent from the Houses of other Fathers; for this dishonour to the heir of the Eldest of their race filled them with wrath.

[Note: the dates are set to fall between Thrór slain by Azog in Khazad-dûm and the Dwarves attack Orc strongholds in the Misty Mountains.]
