The house of Men most commonly known as the House of Hador, though in fact its roots went back four generations before Hador's time, to his ancestor Marach, who led his people across the Blue Mountains and into Beleriand. In Appendix A to The Lord of the Rings, the Third House is called '... the most renowned in the wars with Morgoth', and this is no exaggeration: besides Hador, it counted Húrin, Túrin, Huor, Tuor and Eärendil himself among its descendants.
