[edit] History

With his father, Baldor explored Rohan, and came to Harrowdale. They found the Paths of the Dead. Surprised by a riddle from an old man that forbade them passage, he became curious. At the inauguration of Meduseld in T.A. 2569, he vowed to pass the Dark Door. He did so a year later, and was never seen again alive.[1]

Early March T.A. 3019, Aragorn and the Grey Company found the golden-clad knight. His legs were broken, and his sword was notched.[2]
