The king asleep in mountain (D 1960.2 in Stith Thompson's motif index system)[1] is a prominent folklore trope found in many folktales and legends. Thompson termed it as the Kyffhäuser type.[2] Some other designations are king in the mountain, king under the mountain, sleeping hero, or Bergentrückung (rapture hero).

The motifs A 571 "Cultural hero asleep in mountain", and E 502, "The Sleeping Army" are similar and can occur in the same tale.[1] A related motif is the "Seven Sleepers" (D 1960.1,[2] also known as the "Rip Van Winkle" motif), whose type tale is the Seven Sleepers of Ephesus (AT tale type 766).

King in the mountain stories involve legendary heroes, often accompanied by armed retainers, sleeping in remote dwellings including caves on high mountaintops, remote islands, or supernatural worlds. The hero is frequently a historical figure of some military consequence in the history of the nation where the mountain is located.

The stories gathered by the Brothers Grimm concerning Frederick Barbarossa and Charlemagne are typical of the stories told, and have been influential on many variants and subsequent adaptations. The presence of the hero is unsuspected; until some herdsman wanders into the cave, typically looking for a lost animal, and sees the hero. The stories almost always mention the detail that the hero has grown a long beard, indicative of the long time he has slept beneath the mountain.[citation needed]

In the Brothers Grimm version, the hero speaks with the herdsman. Their conversation typically involves the hero asking, "Do the eagles (or ravens) still circle the mountaintop?" The herdsman, or a mysterious voice, replies, "Yes, they still circle the mountaintop." "Then begone! My time has not yet come."[citation needed]

The herdsman in this story was then supernaturally harmed by the experience: he ages rapidly, he emerges with his hair turned white, and often he dies after repeating the tale. The story goes on to say that the king sleeps in the mountain, awaiting a summons to arise with his knights and defend the nation in a time of deadly peril. The omen that presages his rising will be the extinction of the birds that trigger his awakening.[6][7]

A number of European kings, rulers, fictional characters and religious figures have become attached to this story. Major examples are King Arthur of Britain and Holy Roman Emperor Frederick Barbarossa,[8][9] Ogier the Dane and William Tell.[9]

So, taking this into account I think it is extremely likely that Dwarves would have known about (and would have used) magnets and particularly lodestone devices (early compasses). They after all are the ones doing most of the mining in Middle Earth and would no doubt have encountered plenty of lodestones. Most lodestones by the way are found near the surface which actually makes them rather common (the leading theory is that lodestones are magnetized by the strong magnetic fields surrounding lightning bolts, hence found near the surface).

There fell also Fíli and Kíli, his sister-sons. But Dáin Ironfoot, his cousin, who came from the Iron Hills to his aid and was also his rightful heir, became then King Dáin II, and the Kingdom under the Mountain was restored, even as Gandalf had desired.

As previously noted, we have no idea. Tolkien was presumably not interested in the topic of succession, so we have no Word of God answer on the subject. Considering that Dís is literally the only Dwarf female identified in Tolkien's writings (and Tolkien identified a lot of Dwarf kings, as you can see from the above image), it's a fair assumption that they follow a variation of Salic law, with no Queens allowed, but exactly which version they follow is unknown, and there are no clues to help us sort it out.

What effect would [Durin's reincarnation] have on the succession? Probably this 'return' would only occur when by some chance or other the reigning king had no son. The Dwarves were very unprolific and this no doubt happened fairly often.

Knife of the Undermountain King is one of the Shortsword Weapons in Baldur's Gate 3. Knife of the Undermountain King is a powerful magical sword that makes results of 19 into critical hits and gives you a reroll on low damage rolls, it also helps against obscured targets by giving you advantage to the attack roll. In BG3, each type of weapon has different ranges, damages, and other features (Finesse, Versatile, Dippable, etc.). Characters need to master certain Proficiency before using a weapon, and sometimes gain special Actions while holding it.

King under the Mountain was a pretty nice colony-building game from Rocket Jump Technology, and it was going through a huge upgrade. Sadly, their publisher cancelled on them so they're having to re-release as Mountaincore.

It's a bit of an odd one this. The developer went from working on it solo, to having a publisher come along to help fund further development allowing them to build a small team. The plan was to continue working solidly on it for 9 months, then do a brand new release under the publisher. Just as work was coming to an end the publisher backed away.

The descent of the Kings under the Mountain from its founder Thráin I. The names of Kings who ruled in Erebor are shown in bold text. Note that it is not established with certainty that the descendants of Dáin II ruled continuously in Erebor, but the available evidence suggests that this is likely.

The title taken by Thráin I, founder of the Dwarf-kingdom at Erebor, the Lonely Mountain, and maintained by those Kings of Durin's Folk who dwelt there. The line was broken twice, once by Thorin I (he and four generations of his descendants ruled from the Grey Mountains rather than Erebor), and once by the Dragon Smaug (who claimed the title for himself). In both cases, the line was restored to a rightful heir.

A legendary form of Faux Death: the Long-Dead Badass is not really dead, but asleep. Usually, but not necessarily, under a mountain. Islands and a Magical Land are other possibilities. At any rate, somewhere difficult to access.

See also Awakening the Sleeping Giant, which comes into play when it does happen; while not technically neutral, they are effectively so because they are not in the fray. Sister Trope to Sealed Good in a Can and Sealed Badass in a Can; they overlap in those rare stories where the king does wake. Compare Sealed Evil in a Can. Compare Present Absence, Rip Van Winkle, Year Outside, Hour Inside, and Stumbling Upon the Lost Wizard.
