Hlothrabatta was founded by the goblins dwelling along a massive Underdark ridge called Olum-Uroth. Many of the homes and caves structures of the city are accessible only by rope bridges. Hlothrabatta is a melting pot of derro, goblins, Mîmêk and minotaurs.
In the Allof Stond War, Hlothrabatta allied with the Melephaeusans, defeating Megrlof's fire giants.
In 1723, the last year of the Brothers Enmity War (1697 - 1723), Hlothrabatta was sacked by a combined army of Taklumlode and Ba'lith soldiers. Thereafter, it became a Taklumlode holding.
