Silmarillion Character Profile: Hador

One of the most daunting things about reading The Silmarillion is keeping all of the names straight. I love this, so I want to make it more accessible for the general reader with brief character profiles.

  • Name: Hador
  • Immediate Family:
    • Wife: Gildis
    • Son #1: Gundor
    • Son #2: Galdor
    • Daughter: Glóredhel
  • Home: Dor-lómin
  • Claim to fame: The leader of the greatest house of the Edain (men)
  • Why I think he’s interesting: Those in Hador’s household spoke only the Elvish language (even though they remembered their own language as well).
