The lands to the north-east of Dorthonion that were granted by the Noldorin Kings to the Men of the House of BÃ«or.
The northeastern reaches of Dorthonion.
A highland region to the northeast of Dorthonion. It was held briefly as a fief by the House of BÃ«or, but lost to Morgoth in the Dagor Bragollach.
The region of Ladros seems originally to have been a fief of Finrod Felagund (at least, his brothers Angrod and Aegnor held 'the northern slopes of Dorthonion', according to Quenta Silmarillion, Of Beleriand and its Realms). Finrod later assigned this land to Boromir of the House of BÃ«or, whose members had long been loyal in his service.
Of the House of BÃ«or, there were three lords of Ladros - Boromir himself, his son Bregor, and Bregor's son Barahir. In Barahir's time, Morgoth overwhelmed Dorthonion and Ladros in the Dagor Bragollach: Barahir and twelve faithful Men, including his son Beren, became outlaws in their own land, assaulting Morgoth's forces from their hidden lair at Tarn Aeluin on Ladros' southern borders. They were betrayed by Gorlim the Unhappy, and all were slain but Beren, who escaped into the south. After this time, Ladros fell under the yoke of Morgoth until it was swallowed by the Great Sea at the end of the First Age.
