A nobleman of Númenor

Among the descendants of House of Hador in Númenor was one Hatholdir, a close friend of Tar-Meneldur the fifth King. Hatholdir's son was Orchaldor, who married Meneldur's elder daughter Ailinel, making Orchaldor the brother-in-law of Meneldur's Heir Aldarion. Orchaldor and Ailinel had a son, Soronto, who seems to have played some part in the history of Aldarion's Kingship, though the details of his actions are nowhere recorded.
