Literature DictionaryTolkiens Middle-Earth Dictionary
The seventh Ruling Steward of Gondor, who inherited the Stewardship from his father Túrin I, and in due course was succeeded by his son Barahir. It was the fashion at this period of history for Gondor's Stewards to take their names from historical figures of the First Age, a fashion that would survive for four generations after Hador to his great-great-grandson Steward Boromir. Hador himself was named for the great hero Hador Lórindol, ancient Lord of Dor-lómin.
Little of note occurred during Hador's rule. On the three hundredth anniversary of the Stewards' Reckoning, the calendar introduced by his ancestor Mardil, he added an extra day to the year to 'fine-tune' the calendar's accuracy. Hador ruled during the time of the Watchful Peace, and so had no need to concern himself with matters of war, though his descendants would not be so fortunate.
Hador ruled Gondor for one hundred and seventeen years, and was succeeded by his son Barahir.
Called Lórindol 'Goldenhead', also Hador the Golden-haired; lord of Dor-lómin, vassal of Fingolfin; father of Galdor father of Húrin; slain at Eithel Sirion in the Dagor Bragollach. The House of Hador was called the Third House of the Edain.

Bearer of the Dragon-helm.
The son of Hathol and descendant of Malach Aradan; he was granted the land of Dor-lómin by High King Fingolfin, and ruled it as its Lord until the Dagor Bragollach, when he was slain at Eithel Sirion.
