because there were 7 dwarf lords>I know it was because of the 7 dwarf lords, but why is it 7?
because there were 7 "fathers of the dwarves", the original dwarven men created by aule, from which all other dwarves are descended. the dwarves also believed (it's not clear if they were correct) that the original 7 dwarves were reincarnated down the ages, so durin VI (of durin's bane fame) was believed to be the 6th incarnation of the original durin.
you're probably going to ask:>why did aule make 7 dwarves?
he actually made 13 or 14 because they had wives (except maybe durin). why make that many? why not? 7 is considered a bit of a special number. don't ask me why. some christian thing maybe.
