Hathol

The father of Hador Lórindol

The son of Magor and grandson of Malach Aradan, one of the first Men to cross the Blue Mountains from the eastern lands. Little is known of Hathol's life, except that he was the father of the great hero Hador Lórindol, who served Fingolfin and was granted the land of Dor-lómin to dwell in.


Notes

1

Hathol's date of birth is taken from a genealogical chart reproduced in volume 11 of The History of Middle-earth. The date of Hathol's death is not recorded, but his ancestors typically lived a little longer than ninety years. On that basis, Hathol himself probably lived until I 455 (the year the Dagor Bragollach began) or perhaps a little later.

2

The same chart described in the note above lists Hathol as 'Hathol (the Axe)'. This seems to imply that his name actually meant 'Axe' (as his father Magor's name meant 'Sword').
