Malach Aradan was an Edain Man of the House of Marach in the First Age.

BiographyEdit

Malach was the eldest son of Marach, the first Lord, Chieftain of his people who were numerous compared to the other houses of the Edain. The House of Marach was the Third House of the Edain. When they crossed the Blue Mountains into Beleriand, Malach dwelt at first with his people at Estolad, but later journeyed north and entered the service of the Noldorin Elven-prince Fingon, son of the High Elven-king Fingolfin of the Ñoldor in Hithlum. While living among the Ñoldor, Malach was given the name Aradan, meaning 'noble man' in the High Elven-tongue. When he had dwelt in Hithlum fourteen years, he returned to Estolad upon the death of his father Marach and became the second Chieftain of Marach's people. Malach Aradan soon led a great part of his people, the Marachians, westward of Beleriand to the country of Hithlum in the north which was given to his people by the Noldorin Elven-lords of the House of Fingolfin.

Malach Aradan married Zimrahin, a woman from his people who was later given a Sindarin name Meldis. He had many children by her and among his sons, Magor was his eldest son and heir, as well as a daughter Adanel likely his eldest child who was counted among the Wise of the Edain and was thus well-known as Adanel the Wise. Malach was the great-grandfather of Hador Lórindol who later had the House of Hador named after him which was changed from the House of Marach.[1]

EtymologyEdit

The other part of his name 'Aradan' was a Sindarin word that meant 'king's man'.[2]
