Gozdaron, originally a Captain in the dwarven military, was the first King of Keldagrim, instated by the Council of the Elder Magi. Zamorak had placed a curse on dwarves that would use the magic in their blood to turn them into chaos dwarves and with Guthix sleeping and unable to stop the curse, the only way they could break it was to permanently stop dwarves from being able to use magic. This action caused widespread strife in Keldagrim and so the council elected Gozdaron as an absolute ruler in the hopes that he would be able to quash any rebellions and promote order.
The dwarves have traditionally perceived Gozdaron as a semi-mythical figure anointed by Guthix himself. The truth of how he really became king was forgotten until the Player recovered the Azdaran document.

We will therefore use the last of our authority to install Captain Gozdaron as absolute ruler, and pray that he will quickly win the inevitable civil war and bring order to the city."
