Easterling ruler of Hithlum

People of

An Easterling and ally of Morgoth during the First Age. After Morgoth's capture of the land of Hithlum, Brodda became its lord.



The descent of Brodda is not explained specifically, but in the Narn i Chîn Húrin, Túrin reports that Dor-lómin is occupied by the people of Uldor the Accursed, and as a leader of that occupation it seems that Brodda must have had high standing among that people.
