Deep King was a title used by a dwarven ruler, equivalent to a king.


The dwarven kingdom of Roldilar, founded in 610 DR, was ruled by Deep King Tuir Stonebeard. It dominated the lands of the Vast, below and aboveground.[1][2] As Roldilar fell in 649 DR, Tuir was the last deep king whose dominion spread over the surface, and the last to be well known there.[2]
