Galdor was a man of Dor-lómin during the First Age.

BiographyEdit

He was the son of Hador Lórindol and succeeded his father as Lord of Dor-lómin, Lord of the House of Hador, and Captain of Eithel Sirion. He married Hareth and had two sons - Húrin and Huor. Galdor had a younger brother named Gundor and an older sister named Glóredhel.

Galdor was noted for his exceptional height, even among the Edain, and was also called Galdor the Tall. He led the people of Hador when they were at the peak of their power, before the Nirnaeth Arnoediad. He was slain by an arrow when Eithel Sirion was besieged by Morgoth's armies.[1][2]

Other namestakesEdit

In The Book of Lost Tales Galdor was also the name of a lord of Gondolin.[3]

In The Lord of the Rings, a character with the same name appears, an Elven lord of the Grey Havens who takes part in the Council of Elrond. For information on this character see: Galdor of the Havens. He may be the same character as the Ñoldorin Galdor of Gondolin.
