For nearly seven centuries, the dwarves of northern Hells Womb refused to form a central government. There was no basis of royal blood, so the traditional dwarven kingdom was never established. They instead maintained law and order at the clan level and formed councils to represent their interests across the many clans.
By the Year 1252, the dwarven clans dwelling across Gathol were suffering from attacks by the Orchish Empire. The heads of the clans met and formed a joint defensive pact, thereby becoming Iburakthal.
In the First Sorrow Pass War, the Iburakthal proved their meddle by defeating the Orchish Empire.
Ultimately, the rise of military might by the Black Tide of Thasmudyan and the Orchish Empire led to the downfall of Iburakthal. Paradomea, the Farinteen Empire, and even the Council of Bile tried to form mutual defense pacts with the dwarves, and then offer a common front against the aggressors. But pride often fells the greatest, the Iburakthal were wiped out in the Second Sorrow Pass War. The refugees of the empire scattered into the mountains or joined the citizenry of nearby empires.
