For the elf with the same name, see Galdor of the Havens.

Galdor was a Man of Dor-lómin of the House of Hador (Third House of the Edain) during the First Age.

BiographyEdit

Galdor was the second child and elder son of Hador Lórindol and succeeded his father as Lord of Dor-lómin, the sixth Chieftain of the House of Hador (a.k.a, House of Marach), and Captain of Eithel Sirion. He married Hareth of the Haladin and had two sons - the elder son was Húrin and the younger son was 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 namesakesEdit

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.
