Article written by Gerrin
The Thane of the Theiwar is decided by combat, unanimous selection by the Theiwar or through a series of challenges. The winner or chosen one rules until death.

Glome the Assassin (ca. 2157 PC - 2155 PC) seized power as thane following the death of Twist. He was later killed when he tried to take over all the dwarves and killed Colin Stonetooth.
