Bór the Faithful (died F.A. 472) was a leader of a tribe of Easterlings during the First Age.


Bór's people came into Beleriand after the Dagor Bragollach. He and his sons Borlad, Borlach, and Borthand swore allegiance to Maedhros and Maglor.[1]


The name Bór is Noldorin, given by the Elves because of his loyalty to them.[2]
