Basically dwarfs have a business or something and their premises are referred to as a mine even if it's not really a mine. Thus Shatta is as much a mine as Mr/King Ironfounderson's literal mine is. The head of said mine is referred to as the King but he isn't literally a king and I doubt the position is in any way hereditary. I assume every mine has some grags among them and the King may very well be a grag himself. Since Deepdowners tend to own mines they tend to be Kings and the Low King is chosen from these dwarfs based on various things mentioned in 5th Elephant.

Their marriages are monogamous and contain various contractual elements.
