The prideful son of Brego and grandson of Eorl the Young. He tried the Paths of the Dead, though he had been told that the way was shut to him. His bones were found long years afterward by Aragorn and his company.


Notes

1

We don't have a specific date of birth for Baldor, but we do know that he was the eldest of King Brego's sons. Given that his younger brother Aldor was known to have been born in III 2544, it follows that Baldor must have been born before that date.
